§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the effect on the financial resources available to Tayside health board following the decision to accept the Scottish health authorities revenue equalisation formula as the basis for revenue allocation.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart:
The allocation of funds made to Tayside health board for revenue expenditure purposes in 1981–82 is £104.5 million. Since the Scottish health authorities revenue equalisation formula was adopted in 1978 the revenue allocations to the board have increased by 0.5 per cent. in real terms.
