HC Deb 01 November 1988 vol 139 c593W
Mr. Anthony Coombs

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the latest information he has regarding the income generation pilot schemes in the National Health Service.

Mr. Mellor

Income generation schemes in the National Health Service are expected to produce about £11 million in the current financial year.

The Health and Medicines Bill will significantly increase the ability of health authorities to generate extra income. As a result, income from such schemes is likely to increase substantially during the next few years.
