asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give for 1985–86 and for each district and special health authority the total income under (a) section 58, (b) section 65, (c) section 66 of the National Health Services Act 1977 and (d) the bad debts written off in respect of private patients.

[pursuant to the reply, 24 November 1986, c. 122]: Following are the figures recorded in the annual accounts of health authorities for 1985–86. Income under each heading is shown net of sums written off in the year (including those due from earlier years). Separate write-off figures for income due under section 58 (which arises mainly from services provided to private health care establishments) are not collected centrally.
