§ Mr. Randall
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of(a) underspend and (b) overspend in the current financial year by each health authority in the NHS Eastern Region. 
§ Mr. Hutton
By the end of this financial year we expect all health authorities to live within their agreed resource limits. Where they require support at year-end this will be provided principally through brokerage from elsewhere in the national health service. This is normal practice in managing the year end financial position of individual bodies and for the NHS overall.
