§ Mr. Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give the amounts of revenue and capital originally allocated from the North West Thames regional health authority to Barnet area health authority or Barnet district health authority in each of the last 10 years.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
[pursuant to his reply, 8 November 1983 c. 66]: The information is not routinely collected by the Department, but at my request the North-West Thames RHA has collated the following information about the latest revenue and capital allocations notified to Barnet AHA or Barnet health authority for each of the last 10 years:576W
(£ million) Year Revenue Capital 1974–75 17.7 — 1975–76 24.0 — 1976–77 27.5 — 1977–78 30.6 — 1978–79 33.5 1.3 1979–80 40.0 1.4 1980–81 52.9 2.5 1981–82 58.1 2.3 1982–83 59.7 1.8 1983–84 63.3 1.1
1. All figures include joint finance.
2. Capital allocations exclude any major schemes which are managed and funded directed by the RHA.
3. 1978–79 was the first year in which AHAs in the Region were given their own capital cash limit. Prior to that AHAs' capital expenditure was all accounted for in the RHA's own annual accounts.
4. The Capital cash limit includes a basic block allocation but can also fluctuate according to the number of specific scheme delegated for Area or District control.
