§ Dr. David Clark
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish the annual financial allocation to the South Tyneside area health authority for each year since April 1974; and what this represents in real terms.
§ Dr. Vaughan
No. While my right hon. Friend is responsible for financial allocations to regional health authorities, allocations to area health authorities are made by regional health authorities—that for the South Tyneside area health authority by the Northern regional health authority. The hon. Member may like to contact the Northern regional health authority direct.
