§ Mr. Mudie
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what conclusions the NHS executive has reached from its inquiries into irregular relocation support to staff after February 1993; and what was(a) the total cost of such support and (b) the amount to be recovered (i) in total and (ii) by health authority. 
§ Mr. Malone
[holding answer 21 March 1996]: None. The new General Council agreement on removal expenses, promulgated on 11 February 1993, allows an employing authority to meet any reasonable cost incurred in relocation.
