Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the cost is of controlling the bleeding of people with haemophilia (a) using recombinant factor VIII and factor IX and (b) using plasma derived products. 
Sandra Gidley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions she has had with the Secretary of State for Education regarding checks for health workers who work with children in schools; and when such discussions took place. 
Mr. Byrne: Prior to her announcement on 19 January, the Secretary of State had conversations about safeguarding children with my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education and Skills on 12 and 18 January.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 9 January 2006, Official Report, column 128W, on Herceptin, for what reasons Herceptin is excluded from section 10(6)(4) of the pharmaceutical price regulation scheme published on 3 November 2004. 
Jane Kennedy: Herceptin is not excluded from the 2005 pharmaceutical price regulation scheme under paragraph 10.6.4. All branded licensed national health service medicines are subject to the scheme irrespective of which indications are licensed.
Mr. Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what targets have been set for hospital bed occupancy; how many beds have been available in (a) general and (b) acute wards in hospitals in Lancashire Teaching NHS Trust in each year since 1997; and what percentage of these were occupied on average in each year. 
Mr. Byrne: Evidence suggests that the optimal bed occupancy rate is around 82 to 85 per cent. These figures however are merely a guideline and it is up to the national health service locally to decide how best to manage their services.
The number of beds that have been made available in general and acute wards in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation NHS Trust, and the percentage of these that were occupied on average since 1997 is shown in the table. The data are collected on a provider rather than a commissioner basis.
Ms Rosie Winterton: Strategic health authorities are responsible for ensuring that national health service organisations work together with other stakeholders, including NHS foundation trusts, to coordinate and improve NHS services throughout the year. Effective hospital capacity planning and bed management is one key element in this local process.
It is a tribute to all NHS staff that, nationally, the patient experience in accident and emergency and elective care has continually improved over recent years. For example, over 98 per cent. of patients are now seen and treated in A&E in less than four hours.
