HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c858W
Mr. Hoban

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what mechanisms are in place to monitor the use of resources earmarked for cancer treatment. [50803]

Ms Blears

[holding answer 18 June 2002]: We have already asked health authorities how much of the growth money they are planning to spend on cancer. In May 2002, we will ask them to provide an outturn stating how much they have actually spent during 2001–02, to set alongside information on progress with implementing the NHS Cancer Plan.

will continue to monitor progress, including the use of earmarked funds via primary care trusts in 2002–03.
