HC Deb 04 February 1991 vol 185 c47W
Mr. Channon

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what he estimates to be the annual cost of administering community health councils.

Mr. Dorrell

The expenses of community health councils are met by and are reported with the total expenditure of the health authorities with which they are associated.

The summarised accounts of health authorities in England for 1989–90 show such expenses as £8.6 million.
