HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 cc86-7W
Mr. Wareing

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what special funding is provided by his Department to assist hospitals in the proximity of airports; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

None. It is for health authorities to determine how the resources available should be distributed to their hospitals in line with national policy guidelines and their assessment of local needs and priorities.
