§ Mr. Brandreth
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are her plans for the work of the Department in 1994–95 and beyond.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
I have agreed a statement of the aims, goals and priorities for my Department for 1994–95 and subsequent years.
The statement covers the whole range of the Department's work relating to health and social services, European Community and other international issues, and internal management.
The statement includes our specific priorities for the national health service executive, which are taken forward in more detail in the NHS executive's business plan for 1994–95 approved by the NHS policy board.
Copies of both statements have been placed in the Library.
