§ Mr. Robert Banks
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what were the costs per student day calculated from the last year's audited accounts of the White Hart training centre in Harrogate; and if he will compare these with those of previous years.
§ Mr. John Patten
The costs were as follows:
Financial year Participant days Gross cost of centre Cost per participant day £ £ 1980–81 9,592 371,234 38.70 1981–82 8,175 406,226 49.69 1982–83 10,087 434,396 43.06 1983–84 11,799 414,615 35.14
The training centre is now the responsibility of the new National Health Service Training Authority which, in recognition of the demands on the limited resources available to the service, is continuing to look for economies in the administration of all its training establishments.
