§ 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 £608.231W
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.
