HC Deb 20 April 1994 vol 241 c543W
Mr. Milburn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will list those trusts, by region, that have failed to(a) achieve a capital return of 6 per cent. or more, (b) break even and (c) operate within external financing limits in each year since their inception.

Mr. Sackville

The information requested for the years 1991–92 and 1992–93 will be placed in the Library. Information for 1993–94 will not be available until the annual accounts of trusts are audited.

The majority of trusts listed had technical issues which affected their ability to meet their financial duties. This does not imply any failure in financial control. In a number of cases the difference between actual financial performance and statutory target is deemed to be immaterial.
