HC Deb 15 February 1988 vol 127 c502W
Mr. Boswell

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services in what circumstances an individual ambulance authority raises charges from another authority for mutual assistance or services; and whether the financing of such mutual services is balanced.

Mrs. Currie

[holding answer 11 February 1988]: It is for the regional health authority to agree the circumstances in which such changes should be raised. Where the boundaries of an area served by a particular ambulance authority are not conterminous with regional health authority boundaries, an appropriate adjustment is made to the resource allocation targets of the health authorities concerned.
