HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 c276W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what expenditure has been undertaken by his Department to encourage safe and effective contraception in the Nottingham area, in each of the last 10 years.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Regional health authorities are responsible for allocating funds to individual districts who are in turn responsible for determining the need for and level of local services and providing them in the most efficient way. Family planning services are no exception to this.
