§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the savings to date from his policy of reducing bureaucracy in the NHS; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Win Griffiths
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 17 December 1997,Official Report, column 209. I can confirm that I expect to be able to establish what savings have been made when the audited accounts of health authorities and trusts for 1997–98 are available in August.
