To ask the Secretary of State for Health if, pursuant to his parliamentary reply of 9 May, Official Report, column 128, he will give a breakdown of the figures given for the proceeds from disposal of National Health Service land in the East Anglian region, to show proceeds in each of the district health authorities in the East Anglian region, for 1984–85, 1985–86, 1986–87, 1987–88 and 1988–89.

The regional health authority has provided the information in the following table. They are unable to provide a breakdown by districts for the years 1984–85 and 1985–86.

The information requested is given in the tables. The following changes affect the comparability of figures over time:

  • (a) In 1982 National Health Service restructuring led to changes in the region of management of some London hospitals.
  • (b) The 1987–88 and 1988–89 figures are for beds in wards classified as being for elderly patients whereas earlier figures are for beds assigned to the geriatrics department.
  • (c) The 1987–88 and 1988–89 figures for in-patients are for patients treated by a geriatric clinical consultant whereas earlier figures are for patients treated in the geriatric department. Some patients previously categorised as geriatric are now categorised as being treated in general medicine.
