§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the resources allocation working party formula for capital allocations is to be adjusted in the light of the state of the capital stock revealed in the Rayner report on National Health Service property.
§ Mr. John Patten
No. A recent DHSS/NHS review of the RAWP formula for capital allocations recommended that the capital stock element of the formula should be phased out, and this recommendation is being implemented.
