§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what management resources he is planning to make available to the development of the primary care trusts; and what estimate he has made of the costs of management that will be needed to(a) develop and (b) service these at each stage. 
§ Mr. Milburn
Primary care trusts will be funded from within the overall health authority/primary care group management cost envelope. Where a primary care trust merges with a community National Health Service trust the management cost envelope will be further adjusted.
