HC Deb 02 February 1984 vol 53 c343W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied that health authorities have sufficient knowledge of costs to fix economic charges to private medical institutions for services provided to them under section 58 of the National Health Service Act 1977.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Yes. NHS treasurers have sufficient expertise to advise their authorities on the application of the guidance issued by the Department in January 1981.
