HC Deb 26 July 1982 vol 28 cc380-1W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much the inquiry into the National Health Service costs will cost.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the review of the arrangements for forecasting and controlling expenditure on the family practitioner services which I announced on 16 July 1982—Vol. 27, c. 492. Tenders have been invited from selected consultancy firms. It will be some weeks before they are received.
