HC Deb 19 April 2000 vol 348 c529W
15. Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with the First Secretary about health funding in Wales. [118449]

Mr. Hanson

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I meet regularly with the First Secretary and the Assembly Health Secretary to discuss Health issues in Wales. In the light of the recent Budget announcements we have, of course, discussed health funding specifically. However, it is for the National Assembly to decide how the additional funding allocated to Wales is distributed.
