Dr. Whitehead: No single source of information is available on the nature and full extent of work-related ill health in Great Britain. The most inclusive and broadly based estimates come from self-reporting surveys of the national population where individuals are asked to report any work related ill health they have suffered in the last 12 months. The latest available estimate of the incidence of new cases of work-related ill health from such a survey is for 1995; some 400,000 cases per year, or an incidence rate of 1,400 per 100,000 workers. An updated estimate, for 200102, will be published later this year.
More recent figures for particular types of work-related ill health are available from alternative are published in Health and Safety Statistics 200001, a copy of which is in the Library (and on the internet at http:// www.house.gov.uk/statistics/2001/hsspt2.pdf).
Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions how many working days were lost per 100,000 workers from (a) work-related injury and (b) ill health in each year since 1997. 
Dr. Whitehead: The overall number of working days lost, as a result of work-related injury, is obtained every three years through a national survey. The latest figure, covering the financial year 200001, is estimated to be 27,900 working days lost per 100,000 workers, while in 199798 the figure was 25,800.
For work-related ill health, the latest available figure is based on a survey of self-reported work-related illness in 1995. The survey estimated that 71,000 working days were lost per 100,000 workers in Great Britain. A more up-to-date estimate, covering 200102, will be available later this year.
Mr. Clifton-Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what arrangements were put in place at the time of the NATS PPP to ensure that the income generated by the online services was kept separate from the other services. 
Mr. Jamieson: The ring-fencing of NATS' en route services is effected through the air traffic services licence granted under the Transport Act 2000. The Government placed copies of this licence in the Libraries of the House in April 2001.
