HC Deb 10 May 1990 vol 172 cc230-1W
29. Mr. Andrew Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much was spent on health per head of the population in Northern Ireland in 1989–90; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Needham

Spending on health and personal social services in Northern Ireland per head of the population in 1989–90 was about £608.

This remains substantially above levels in England and Wales and is a continued recognition of the Province's need for additional health and social services care, despite other pressures on resources.
