Mr. Maude: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent assessment she has made of the effect on (a) costs and (b) risks to patients' health of running split-site accident and emergency departments. 
Mr. Byrne: There are national health service trusts that are responsible for two or more hospitals that each provides accident and emergency services but I am not aware of any single departments working on split sites or of any plans to provide services in this way. No assessment of the costs or risks of a single department being split between two or more sites has therefore being made.
Ms Rosie Winterton: We take the issue of eating disorders, especially among young people, very seriously. Anorexia nervosa in particular can have serious consequences for general health, and has high rates of mortality. This is why we asked the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to publish guidelines on core interventions for these disorders as part of its second programme of work. NICE published clinical guidelines on eating disorders in January 2004.
We envisage that services for people with eating disorders will improve, along with the whole spectrum of mental health services, as a result both of the Government's prioritisation of mental health services through the implementation of the 1999 national service framework for mental health and our increased spending on mental health from £4.07 billion in 19992000 to £5.09 billion in 200304.
On site services at immigration removal centres are subject to monitoring by Home Office contract monitors and are included in Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prison's inspections of individual centres.

addition, initial discussions have taken place with the Healthcare Commission with a view to the possible registration of the private contractors who provide services at removal centres, which would bring them within the Healthcare Commission's oversight and inspection programme. While primary care trusts are not part of the formal monitoring process, they are being encouraged to work together with the removal centres to develop local protocols to improve the interface between healthcare services within the centres and the local national health service.
Steve Webb: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 28 October 2005, Official Report, columns 56667W, on blood, what percentage of (a) hospitals and (b) primary care trusts are (i) partially and (ii) fully compliant with current requirements and best practice. 
Caroline Flint: Hospital blood banks or primary care trusts do not require authorisation but are required under the provisions of the Blood Safety and Quality Regulations 2005 (as amended) to submit a report on or before 31 December 2005 to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) if undertaking activities covered by these regulations. These reports will be assessed by the MHRA for compliance with the regulations and regulatory action will follow where necessary.
