§ 118. Mr. Martlew
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are his best estimates of the additional costs already to be incurred by local authorities in 1991–92 due to the new legislation on community care.
§ Mr. Dorrell
Our estimates of the financial implications for local authorities of the National Health Service and Community Care Bill are provided in the explanatory and financial memorandum to the Bill. The overall cost of our community care proposals, outlined in the White Paper "Caring for People", is being considered in the current public expenditure survey.
