HC Deb 06 November 2001 vol 374 cc226-7W
Mr. Webb

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will estimate the proportion of the administrative budget of Avon health authority that will be transferred to(a) primary care trusts, (b) the Strategic Health Authority and (c) the regional Government office from April 2002. [12368]

Ms Blears

[holding answer 5 November 2001]: Avon health authority is undertaking preliminary work on the transfer of budgets from the authority to those organisations that are assuming its functions. It is not, however, possible to provide robust estimates on final allocations until the functions and structures of each organisation are agreed in the new year.
