Mr. A. Cecil Walker
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will place in the Library a copy of the full accounts of the health and social services boards in Northern Ireland for 1983–84, together with copies of the auditors' reports.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
No. A summary of board accounts is presented annually to Parliament, and those for 1983–84 were presented on 5 June as Cmnd. 9523. The auditor's report is presented to the Department and is available to the Comptroller and Auditor-General, who reports to Parliament on the summary of accounts.
