§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish a table indicating the expenditure levels forecast for each district health authority in Wales for the coming financial year, together with comparable expenditure for each of the preceeding five years.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
The following table provides the actual outturn expenditure on hospitals and community health services by health authorities in Wales for the years 1981–82 to 1984–85. The figures for 1985–86 and 1986–87 are provisional forecasts of outturn since they do not take account of all of the income which might be generated locally. Nordo they reflect possible movements in balances. Furthermore, the figures for 1986–87 do not take account of a further £13 million which will be allocated for.centrally funded developments during the course of the year. It is therefore not possible to make a direct comparison between the provisional figures given for 1986–87 and those given for the preceeding years.
