§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the area health authorities which are to receive, from the £50 million allocated in the Budget, funds for health visitors, special care baby units and health education.
§ Mr. Moyle
The figures are as follows:
authorities on the lines recommended by the Resource Allocation Working Party, and it is for the regional authorities to make allocations to area health authorities.
Health authorities have been given guidance about the ends—including those mentioned by my hon.

They are also asked to inform my Department by the end of 581W June of the uses they intend to make of the additional money.
