HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 cc140-1W
55. Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he last discussed with the chairman of the regional health authorities the application of the resource allocation working party formula.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Resources are discussed at almost every meeting we have with regional chairmen, and they have repeatedly assured us of their commitment to the principles laid down by the resource allocation working party, on which allocations to health authorities have been based for the past seven years.
