1 Health Building Schemes over £2 million completed after 1 January 1985 but committed before June 1979.

Information about the extent to which facilities are in full use is not held centrally. Although such details were given in reply to the hon. Member's question on 10 December 1985 at column 614, the information obtained was by special inquiry of the regional health authorities concerned. It is no longer standard practice to seek information that is not routinely collected by the Department solely in order to answer parliamentary questions. The hon. Member may, therefore, wish to inquire of the appropriate regional health authorities direct.
