HC Deb 27 April 1998 vol 311 c32W
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. [39438]

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.
