HC Deb 25 November 1985 vol 87 cc472-3W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will give, for each year since 1979, for each health and social services board and for Northern Ireland as a whole, the number of deaths and discharges among, and the number of beds occupied on a given date by, patients receiving treatment under contractual arrangements with institutions outside the National Health Service, breaking the figures down by category of patient treated.

Mr. Needham

This information could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
