asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the composition, staff and administrative costs of the Essex area health authority.

Essex area health authority has a chairman and 22 members. The expenditure on headquarters administration for that authority in 1978–79, including area headquarters and five health district offices, was £5,193,612. This excludes costs for administrative and clerical staff at hospitals and other units which are not available centrally. The whole-time equivalent of the total number of administrative and clerical staff employed by the authority at 30 September 1977 (the latest date for which finalised figures are available) was 2,241. The figures for staff numbers and administrative costs are not therefore comparable.
