HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 c262W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will announce future cash limits in the National Health Service as far ahead as possible in order to give health authorities adequate time to take proper decisions.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I am well aware of the need to notify regional health authorities and boards of governors of their cash limits at the earliest practical date and I shall do my best to meet their wishes in this regard.
