§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the capital expenditure on hospitals in Exeter for each of the years 1975 to 1986.
§ Mr. Newton
Information is not held centrally in this precise form. Total capital expenditure on hospital and community health services in the Exeter district was:
£ million 1982–83 3.7 1983–84 4.7 1984–85 5.0 1985–86 5.4
Notes. — The figures are those shown in the annual financial accounts of the Exeter health authority, together with capital expenditure specifically on behalf of the district shown in the annual accounts of the South Western regional health authority.
Before 1 April 1982, Exeter was part of the area of the Devon area health authority and information on a district basis was not collected centrally. If my hon. Friend wishes to seek further information, I suggest that he contacts the chairman of the Exeter health authority.
