§ Mr. Janman
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of annual revenue was spent on management, administrative and secretarial costs in each of the English district health authorities in 1985–86, 1988–89 and 1989–90.
§ Mr. Dorrell
[holding answer 2 July 1990]: No accurate information on national health service NHS management costs is available. Tables recording expenditure on district health authority headquarters administration and expressing that figure as a percentage of total revenue expenditure for the years 1985–86 and 1988–89 have been placed in the Library. Equivalent information for 1989–90 will be available in the autumn.
