HC Deb 27 October 1980 vol 991 cc182-3W
Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many officers in regional and area health authorities and in services controlled by them have chauffeur-driven cars provided for them; and what guidance has been issued by his Department to keep such services to a minimum.

Dr. Vaughan:

The information requested is not available centrally. The Department has issued no specific guidance on this matter but I would expect health authorities to authorise such services only where strictly necessary.
