§ Mr. Tim Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will arrange for a copy of the financial profile produced by the Audit Commission for each district health authority to be placed in the Library.
§ Mr. Dorrell
The health authority audit profiles are drawn up to assist the Audit Commission in its examination of the health authorities. A copy is made available to each of the authorities concerned. The Audit Commission's reports on the accounts of the health authorities, and certain other reports, are made public but there are no plans for working documents such as audit profiles to be made more widely available.
