HC Deb 11 December 1975 vol 902 cc327-8W
Mr. Tierney

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will give the amount of the capital expenditure budget allocated to the West Midlands Regional Health Authority for the current financial year and for the previous financial years for which there are records.

Dr. Owen

It is provisionally estimated that total capital expenditure in the current financial year by the West Midlands Regional Health Authority will amount to £29.8 million. The provisional accounts for 1974–75 show expenditure of £27.7 million. For figures for the years 1964–65 to 1973–74 inclusive I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to the hon. Member for Rutland and Stamford (Mr. Lewis) on 21st May.—Vol. 892, c.469–72.]
