§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will list the total spending allocated to Doncaster health authority for each year for the last 10 years to date, adjusted for inflation; and if he will also show in his answer, by year, the percentage increase;
(2) if he will list the total spending in the Trent regional health authority for each year for the last 10 years to date, adjusted for inflation; and if he will also show in his answer, by year, the percentage increase.
§ Mr. Freeman
Information derived from annual accounts submitted to the Department is shown in the table: 39W and cannot strictly be attributed to particular regions or districts. However, prior to 1 April 1985 the Doncaster and other authorities within the Trent region each had an associated FPC and their expenditure figures included small elements in respect of the administrative expenses of FPCs which are not separately identifiable.
4.Capital expenditure in particular regions and districts tends to fluctuate year on year mainly reflecting changes in the pattern of capital investment throughout the country.
5.The expenditure figures for the Doncaster authority include sums in respect of capital schemes within the district recorded as capital expenditure in the annual accounts of the Trent RHA but exclude revenue and capital expenditure incurred by the RHA for the region as a whole.
6.Prior to 1 April 1982 the Doncaster health authority's predecessor health district operated as a single-district area health authority and was broadly comparable to the present district health authority.
