asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the total expenditure by the National Health Service on ancillary services.

We have no precise definition of ancillary services. Current expenditure by health authorities classified as on general services was £2,704.2 539W million in 1983–84. The details were given in table 1 in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Howell) on 21 December 1984 at columns 412–14.
