HC Deb 15 April 1991 vol 189 c78W
Mr. Hayes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to place the Audit Commission's annual financial audit of each district health authority in the public domain; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dorrell

The Audit Commission's certificate on each district health authority's accounts is published with the accounts and will include any qualifications which the commission has found it necessary to make. In addition, the commission will make public reports "in the public interest" where particularly significant issues arise. Beyond this, its reports are properly directed to the authority itself.
