§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give the revenue spending and the capital spending of each health authority in each year since 1979.
§ Mr. Newton
This information is given in the booklet "Health Authorities' Annual Accounts—National Summary (England)" prepared annually by the Department. Copies are available in the Library. The most recent edition is for 1984–85. The summary for 1985–86 will be available shortly. For 1979–80, the booklet gives only regional totals and I will write to the hon. Member with the individual health authority figures for that year.
The booklets do not include figures for special health authorities providing central services. These appear as part of the statutory summarised accounts of health authorities which are published annually as a House of Commons paper—for 1984–85, as Paper No. 411 of 1985–86.
