HC Deb 27 January 1976 vol 904 c164W
33. Mr. Grocott

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what has been the estimated total cost of reorganising the Health Service following the Health Service Reorganisation Act 1973.

Mrs. Castle

Reorganisation costs met centrally have totalled approximately £9 million. Available information on costs met by health authorities out of their normal allocations does not identify what part of those costs is attributable to reorganisation or enable its effects to be distinguished separately from other factors.
