§ Mr. Alfred Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the extent of the use of private fund-raising companies by NHS trusts; what guidelines he has issued on good practice and on the allocation of money so raised; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Mawhinney
No assessment has been made arid no guidelines have been issued. These matters are well within the competence of individual trust boards.
