To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any plans to increase resources allocated to the National Health Service in Scotland.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
Yes. My right hon. and learned Friend announced on 9 December that the provision for the National Health Service in Scotland would rise by about £130 million next year, to £2,393 million and by a further £100 million in each of the next two years. I also refer the hon. Member to the additional £7.6 million of which details were mentioned in the reply I gave on 18 December 1987, at column820, to my hon. Friend the Member for Eastwood (Mr. Stewart).
