HC Deb 11 June 1986 vol 99 cc203-5W
Dr. Godman

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, pursuant to the answer of 5 June, if he will list the properties owned by health boards sold in each year specified; what is the destination of the money so raised; and for what purposes it may be applied.

Mr. John MacKay

Land and property in the Health Service in Scotland is held in the name of the Secretary of State. From January 1977, health boards were permitted to retain as a supplement to their ordinary capital allocation the first £30,000 of the proceeds of each sale of land or property relevant to their functions. This amount was increased to £60,000 from April 1981; to £100,000 from April 1984; and to the current level of £250,000 (or £100,000 where the disposal is made possible as a result of the provision of new centrally funded facilities) from 1 April 1986. If a sale realises more than these limits, my Department is prepared to consider requests for an increase in the amount to be retained.

Boards have been advised with regard to the sale of residential accommodation that repair and maintenance of the remaining accommodation might reasonably be regarded as a priority call upon the receipts. It is, however, for hoards to apply the funds as they themselves determine. The likely amount of receipts from all land and property sales is taken into account in setting the total level of expenditure for the Health Service in Scotland in a particular year.
