HC Deb 11 March 1997 vol 292 c171W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the(a) greatest, (b) lowest and (c) average call-out cost of the Royal London hospital air ambulance since it became operational; and if he will make a statement. [19861]

Mr. Horam

Information on the helicopter emergency medical service's call-out costs is not collected centrally.

It is for health authorities to decide the most effective way of providing emergency services for local people.
