asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the expenditure figures on X-ray equipment for diagnosis and therapy by individual regions for the years 1974 to 1977 and the proposed expenditure for 1977–78.

I regret that the information is not available by individual regions but total expenditure on X-ray and other electro-medical apparatus purchased centrally in the financial years 1974–75, 1975–76 and 1976–77 was £8·596 million, £13·783 million and £18·047 million, respectively. The forecast expenditure in 1977–78 is £13·8 million at outturn prices.
