§ 28. Miss McIntosh
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will provide additional funds to Northallerton health services to offset the impact of the reduction of services at the Duchess of Kent's hospital at Catterick. 
§ Mr. Doug Henderson
There are no plans to transfer funds from my Department to Northallerton Health Services, following the reduction of services at the Duchess of Kent's Hospital, Catterick.
It is the responsibility of the North Yorkshire Health Authority to provide and allocate their own resources for civilian patient care in their area.
