70. Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what has been the overspending by the Wandsworth health authority in the current financial year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

Wandsworth district health authority reports an overspend at the end of November of £2.197 million. This is projected to rise by the end of the financial year to a figure between £2.5 and £3.1 million. South West Thames region has been discussing with the district a package of economy measures to reduce the overspend in 1989–90 and to produce a balanced budget for 1990–91. The district is still considering what action to take.
