HC Deb 22 January 1974 vol 867 c253W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if the cost of the services of social workers provided to health authorities will be borne by area health authorities ;

(2) if the cost of the services of medical, dental and auxiliary health staff made available to local authorities under Section 11 of the Act will be met by those authorities.

Sir K. Joseph

I have accepted the recommendation of the Working Party on Collaboration that the cost of these types of staff shall be borne by the employing authority rather than be recharged to user authorities.
