§ The Prime Minister
The provision for the National Health Service in Scotland and in Wales reflects the respective priorities of my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and for Wales. In both countries there are formulae for calculating the annual relative funding positions of health boards authorities. A copy of the report on which the Scottish formula is based (Scottish health authorities revenue equalisation) is available in the Library of the House. I have also arranged for copies of the latest Welsh revenue and capital formulae to be placed there.
