HC Deb 08 June 1995 vol 261 cc299-300W
Mr. Soley

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the total annual expenditure on NHS support services, including catering, domestic, portering, grounds maintenance, estate services and telephones, by each of the health boards in each year since 1990. [26011]

Mr. Moss

The information is not available in the exact form requested. In 1992–93, the format of the boards' accounts were changed to allow for the appointment of overheads and capital charges to services. Comparison of

authorities in Great Britain, employers, trade unions and Government. With regard to the issues for Government, these mainly relate to proposed legislative changes for which the HPSS management executive has no responsibility.
