Mr. Byrne: Strategic health authorities (SHAs) have recently submitted their proposals for the reconfiguration of primary care trusts (PCTs), which set out how they intend to strengthen their commissioning function. These proposals have been assessed by an independent external panel drawn from and representing a wide range of stakeholder interests, to determine whether the SHA proposals meet the criteria stipulated in Commissioning a Patient-Led NHS", (July 2005). Where the criteria are judged to have been met the proposals will go forward to a three-month public consultation. No decisions on the reorganisation of PCTs will be taken until this process has been completed.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate she has made of the number of individuals staying in the UK illegally in each year since 199798 who were eligible for continuing care for HIV because they had stayed in the UK for longer than 12 months until the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations were amended. 
Jane Kennedy: Successive Governments have not required the national health service to provide statistics on the number or nationality of overseas visitors treated under the provisions of the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 1989, as amended, or on the costs of treatment.
Home Office estimates of the amount of people in the United Kingdom (UK) illegally do not separately identify those who have stayed in the UK for 12 months or more and there is no evidence on which an estimate on the proportion of such people who are HIV positive could be based.
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) pursuant to her answer of 17 October 2005, Official Report, columns 76162W, concerning admissions, if she will break down the information by (a) region, (b) strategic health authority and (c) NHS trust; 
(2) pursuant to the answer of 17 October 2005, Official Report, column 762W, on emergency re-admissions, if she will provide equivalent figures for (a) quarter 4 of 200405, (b) quarter 1 of 200506 and (c) each quarter since January 2001, broken down by NHS trust. 
Mr. Byrne: The information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, similar information on annual trends in readmission rates, by age group, broken down by Government regional office and by strategic health authority is available at www.nchod.nhs.uk.
Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidelines she has given to hospitals about the provision of parking spaces for (a) staff and (b) visitors; and if she will make a statement. 
Jane Kennedy: In 1996, NHS Estates, an Executive agency of the Department, published Car Parking, Health Facilities Note 21", which provided advice and guidance on issues surrounding the optimum provision of car parking facilities for health care premises. This has been placed in the Library.
The Department is currently finalising a new guidance document, Transport Management and Car Parking: best practice guidance for NHS Trusts in England", which looks at what measures trusts can adopt when developing travel plans. In addition, it can be used to facilitate discussions with local planning authorities.
No assessment of the Steamplicity catering pilot at Charing Cross hospital has been made by the Department of Health. The pilot scheme is being

This is because, as elsewhere, information on where the infection was acquired may not be available to the doctor certifying the death.

Mr. Graham Stuart: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the target patient transport times are at the Hull Royal Infirmary in relation to children's intensive care; and whether the target was met in the last period for which figures are available. 
Mr. Byrne: The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals National Health Service Trust is part of the regional paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) based at Leeds. The Hull Royal Infirmary has two intensive care unit (ICU) beds for children and therefore does not transfer children to the regional unit at Leeds. As such, there is no target patient transfer time for this group of patients.
