HC Deb 09 January 1985 vol 70 c509W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what resources he intends to make available for the purpose of improving security arrangements for general practitioners' surgeries.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Resources are already available under the improvement grant scheme to doctors wishing to improve the security arrangements at their practice premises. Under this scheme eligible doctors receive by way of grant one-third of the actual cost to them of approved work and related fees, and many doctors have taken advantage of this facility.
