HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 c170W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) when he expects Nottingham district health authority to be funded up to 100 per cent. of its resource allocation working party allocation;

(2) if he will make additional financial provision to the Nottingham district health authority to ensure that essential medical equipment, including X-ray, operating theatre, intensive care and labour ward equipment, can be replaced at a higher rate than the current 25 per cent.;

(3) what is the difference, in cash terms, between Nottingham district health authority's current percentage of resource allocation working party allocation and the full resource allocation working party allocation.

Mr. Newton

Regional health authorities are responsible for the allocation of resources to district health authorities. The hon. Member may care, therefore, to write to the chairman of Trent regional health authority for details of the region's policy on allocations to Nottingham.
