§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if, in his 1984–85 health budget allocations, he proposes to restore in addition to the 2 per cent. increase the moneys taken in the July 1983 cuts; if he will give full details of the constituent parts of his published 2 per cent. 612W increase to health authority allocations for 1984–85; and when he proposes to anounce to area health authorities his allocations for 1984–85.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
The starting point for next year's distribution of resources to health authorities will be their allocations in the current year, uplifted for pay and price rises. My right hon. Friend will shortly be consulting health authority chairmen and, in the light of their views, will make and announce his decisions.
