Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) private, (b) voluntary and (c) local authority (i) care homes and (ii) care home places there have been in each year since 1997. 
I understand from the Chair of the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) that figures for later years were collected by the National Care Standards Commission, and now CSCI, but comparable details are not available.
The Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) regulates care homes in accordance with statutory regulations and national minimum standards to ensure they provide for the needs of their residents. The Care Homes Regulations require homes to provide adequate quantities of suitable, wholesome and nutritious food for service users; and to maintain records of the food provided for service users in sufficient detail to enable inspectors to determine whether the diet is satisfactory, in relation to nutrition and otherwise.
Mr. Byrne: Standard one of the national service framework for children, young people and maternity services sets out the key elements of the child health promotion programme, including developmental reviews and other health promotion services, and the ages at which these interventions would normally take.
Mr. Byrne: Right hon. and hon. Members have tabled several questions on this topic recently. In addition, departmental Ministers have held exploratory discussions with both the Healthcare Commission and the Commission for Social Care Inspection.
Tony Baldry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to her answer of 16 June 2005, Official Report, column 635W, on community hospitals, whether the decision on which services will be provided by each new community hospital will be made by (a) the Government and (b) primary care trusts. 
Mr. Byrne: The Department is in the early stages of developing its policy on community hospitals. Preliminary thinking is that the decision on the provision of services in community hospitals will be a joint one, involving the Department, strategic health authorities and primary care trusts working in partnership and informed by the forthcoming public consultation on services outside of hospitals.
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many cases of computer (a) hacking, (b) fraud and (c) theft her Department recorded in each year since 200102; and for each year on how many occasions computer systems have been illegally accessed by computer hackers (i) within and (ii) outside her Department. 
The Department does not differentiate between losses and thefts nor do we record whether the theft was by an insider or outsider. The losses of IT equipment recorded since 200102 are shown in the table.

Ms Rosie Winterton: Cotswold and Vale Primary Care Trust (PCT), which commissions dental services for the Stroud constituency, has received £363,000 in capital grants and £155,000 in dental access money, which should lead to approximately 12,000 new national health service registrations.
One new dental surgery has opened in Stonehouse. In addition, negotiations are under way with two dentists, one in Stonehouse and the other in Cam, regarding expansion of their practices using currently vacant dental chairs, with a view to filling them with dentists recruited through the Department's overseas recruitment programme. The PCT is also currently looking to set up a new two-dentist surgery in the Stroud area.
Ms Rosie Winterton: As at the end of May 2005, there were 75 national health service dentists practising in Portsmouth City Primary Care Trust (PCT) area. Of these, the numbers of patients shown in the table were registered with each practice. Due to data protection rules, the individual dentists cannot be named, but are referred to as dentist 1, dentist 2, etc.
