HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 c136W
34. Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what arrangements exist for the transfer of capital allocation for hospital building from regions with declining populations to those with increasing populations.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Capital allocations are made to regional health authorities on the basis of a formula recommended by the Resource Allocation Working Party, which takes account of projected population changes and gives a weighting in favour of regions with increasing populations.
