§ Mrs. Anne Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what were the costs per hour of the home help or home care service in Cambridgeshire in each year since 1984, expressed both in actual prices and 1987 prices;
(2) what were the total numbers of home help or home care hours provided in Cambridgeshire in each year since 1984; and, for each year and what were the average numbers of hours per user and per pensioner resident in the county for each year.
§ Mr. Yeo
The information is not held centrally. The numbers of clients, hours of service received by them and costs per hour of service are included in "Personal Social Services Statistics—Actuals" published annually by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy. Several items of the CIPFA data, including hourly costs, are reproduced in "Key Indicators of Local Authority Services" published by the Department of Health. Copies of these publications covering the years up to 1990–91 are in the Library.
