HC Deb 25 May 1976 vol 912 c113W
69. Mr. Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to announce the allocations of capital resources to regional health authorities for the year 1980–81.

Dr. Owen

Allocations to regional health authorities cannot be announced until the Government's firm decisions on public expenditure in the relevant year are taken. Capital allocations for 1976–77 were announced in February 1976 and planning assumptions for the years 1977–78 to 1979–80 are about to be given.
