§ Mr. Harris
To ask the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on co-ordination between the Department of Health and the Scottish Office on the provision of air ambulances.
§ Sir Geoffrey Howe
I have been asked to reply.
It is for health authorities in England and the Common Services Agency, of which the Scottish ambulance service is a division, in Scotland, to decide the level, nature and extent of patient transport services required taking into account their resources and the competing demands upon them.
