HC Deb 26 January 1993 vol 217 cc698-9W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what statistics she has about the incidence of malaria in Britain.

Mr. Sackville

Imported malaria cases reported to the public health laboratory service's malaria reference laboratory as occurring in the United Kingdom are shown in the table:

The main capital planning total of £1,543 million will be deployed as follows: £880 million for spending by national health service trusts; and £663 million for spending by regional health authorities.

In addition £289 million has been earmarked for central budgets, the majority of which will also be allocated to health authorities and national health service trusts. The central budgets provide for national priorities including regional secure units, day surgery facilities, advanced diagnostic equipment, information technology, and community health facilities jointly financed with local government.

Taking these amounts together, a total of £1,832 million, the highest figure ever, will be allocated in 1993–94 for national health service capital spending. In addition over £150 million of receipts from the disposal of surplus assets will be available to trusts and health authorities.

The following table shows the main capital allocations for each regional health authority and the regional totals for main capital spending by national health service trusts. Details of the central budget allocations will be announced separately.
