transitional grant allocation for 1994 95; and if she will make a statement;

(5) what representations she has received regarding the implications of charging for services arising as a result of the special transitional grant being exhausted in a number of local authorities;

(6) what advice she has given to those authorities that have already spent their 1994 95 special transitional grant allocation with regard to (a) meeting community care needs using other resources and (b) prioritising their responses to community care referrals.

Mr. Bowis: In addition to resources available to them through the personal social services standard spending assessment, local authorities have been given £1.27 billion to meet their additional responsibilities under the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 in 1994 95, including a special transitional grant of some £736 million. We are aware of a few authorities which have expressed concern about the level of their resources for community care. It is for them to decide, from their total available resources, including special transitional grant, what proportion they wish to devote to community care taking account of local circumstances and priorities. It is also for them to manage those resources effectively throughout the year.

Organ Donor Register

Mr. Rooker: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the public response to the NHS organ donor register.

Mr. Sackville: Since 6 October, when the national health service organ donor register was launched, about 1.5 million leaflets with registration forms have been sent to post offices, general practitioner surgeries and other public places, and in response to the telephone freeline No. 0800 777 555. We are very encouraged by the volume of applications already received, including people registering through the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, and will continue to give full publicity to the register.

Water Fluoridation

Mr. Rooker: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations she has received from health authorities regarding the level of co-operation by water companies towards the fluoridation of water supplied in line with the levels suggested in her Department's oral health strategy for England.

Mr. Malone: A number of health authorities have, from time to time, made such representations.

Ministerial Travel

Mrs. Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for Health during how many of the overseas visits made by Ministers in her Department between 1 January and 30 June 1994 those Ministers participated in fund-raising activities for the Conservative party; and if she will list the Ministers and the countries in which those activities took place.

Mr. Sackville: None.

Hepatitis C

Mr. Alfred Morris: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people with haemophilia have


Column 30

contracted hepatitis C in consequence of being given contaminated blood supplied under the NHS; how many have since died of the condition; what action she is taking in regard to compensation; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Sackville: These figures are not collected centrally. There are methods of transmission of hepatitis C other than the use of blood and blood products. I understand from the United Kingdom haemophilia centre directors that, of 126 haemophilia patients known to have died in 1993, 12 showed the cause of death as liver disease of which hepatitis C may have been the cause.

We have no plans to make payments to haemophilia patients who may have been infected with hepatitis C.

Elderly Patients

Mr. Hanson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the current number of national health service beds available for nursing elderly people.

Mr. Bowis: There is no designation of national health service beds, whether in hospitals or in nursing homes, intended specifically for the nursing of elderly people.

Secure Accommodation

Mr. McNamara: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussion her Department has had with Humberside county council about the provision of secure accommodation for young people on remand.

Mr. Bowis: I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Wyre Forest (Mr. Coombs) on 22 April at columns 696 97 for details of the local authority capital programme, funded by the Government, to build an additional 170 secure places nationally for criminal justice purposes. The programme was drawn up in consultation with regional groups of authorities. No further secure provision is currently planned in Humberside, but a total of 17 additional places are to be provided by Sheffield and Leeds, to which all authorities in the Yorkshire and Humberside region will have access.

Mr. McNamara: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what additional resources she will give for Humberside county council to meet its responsibilities to provide secure accommodation for young people on remand.

Mr. Bowis: The Government are committed to paying a fair price through fees to local authorities where they are required to arrange secure accommodation for children and young people on remand.

Young People (Residential Care)

Mr. McNamara: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many young people are in residential care in Humberside for whom there is no proper accommodation available; how many are forced to sleep on camp beds; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Bowis: The arrangements made for the accommodation of children looked after by Humberside are the responsibility of Humberside county council.

Mr. Nicholas Baker: It is for each fire authority to determine the level of its capital expenditure and revenue expenditure. My right hon. and learned Friend, in determining basic credit approvals for capital expenditure for each fire and civil defence authority, takes into


Column 35

account a number of factors, including the numbers of fire and emergency and specialist vehicles, fire stations and uniformed employees. The responsibility for distributing basic credit approvals for capital expenditure to county fire authorities in England rests with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment, who is also responsible for determining the standard spending assessments, and determining the capping principles, for all local authorities in England. In Wales, these responsibilities fall to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.

Mr. George Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the average number of hours per year for each fire authority in England and Wales spent on maintaining equipment for each year since 1979.

Mr. Nicholas Baker: The information requested is not available.

Mr. George Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what additional resources will be made available to the probation service to deal with additional assessments of high risk prisoners for home leave from 17 November.

Mr. Nicholas Baker: The major probation service involvement in the new procedures will be through the contribution of probation staff seconded to Prison Service establishments. These staff are paid for by the Prison Service, so probation services will require no additional funding.

Appropriate Adults Scheme

Ms Glenda Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what research his Department has undertaken into the operation of the appropriate adults scheme;

(2) what stage his Department's working party on appropriate adults has reached; and when it is due to report;

(3) what proposals his Department has to amend the appropriate adults scheme.

Mr. Maclean: The appropriate adults working group, set up in response to a recommendation made by the Royal Commission on criminal justice, has met twice. It has commented during the public consultation stage on the draft revised codes of practice issued under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, and expects to be ready to consult widely about its proposals in the new year. The Department has recently supported research studies by John Moore's university, Liverpool, and by Loughborough university and MENCAP on the working of the appropriate adults scheme. It is also supporting three other research projects about entry into the criminal justice system and the PACE--Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 --codes which deal, among other things, with the scheme.

Overseas Domestic Workers

Mrs. Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what proposals have arisen out of the discussions his Department has had with other Government Departments over ways of improving the situation of overseas domestic workers in the United Kingdom;


Column 36

(2) what is the nature and remit of the review currently being undertaken into the situation of overseas domestic workers in the United Kingdom;

(3) when he expects the review currently being undertaken by his Department into the situation of overseas domestic workers in the United Kingdom to report; and if he will then publish it; (4) what action his Department is planning to strengthen measures to protect overseas domestic workers from abusive employers during their stay in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Nicholas Baker: There has not been a formal review, but I am considering the arrangements for the admission of domestic workers in consultation with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Employment Department.
