Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Consultants (Fees) on 3rd February 1987.
Mr. Tim Smith Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services further to his reply to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson) on 19 November 1986, Official Report, columns 221-
Mr. Major The expenditure by the Department in 1984-
Year | Health matters | Social security matters (in £ million)
The figures are approximate. In some cases expenditure on health/social security has been apportioned where consultants have been employed on both. The figures for health matters include social services consultancy. The figures for expenditure by individual health authorities have not been given as they are not kept centrally by the department.
