§ Mr. Duncan
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are her plans for the work of her Department in 1993–94 and beyond.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
I have agreed a statement of the aims, goals and priorities for my Department for 1993–94 and the following three years. It covers the whole range of the Department's work relating to health and social services, European Community and other international issues, and internal management. It includes our specific priorities for the national health service management executive, which are taken forward in more detail in the management executive's statement, "The Goal and Strategies of the Chief Executive and the Management Executive of the NHS and their Objectives for 1993–94", approved by the NHS policy board. Copies of both statements have been placed in the Library.
