HC Deb 12 May 1983 vol 42 c491W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list those companies which have now been awarded contracts for the provision of services previously provided by direct labour under the auspices of health authorities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

This information is not available centrally, but any contracts which are awarded at a lesser cost for equivalent service mean more money for patient care.
