Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the total spending on workforce development confederation budgets was in (a) 200304 and (b) 200405; and what the reasons are for the difference in the two figures. 
Mr. Byrne: The total spending on workforce development confederation budgets was £3,436 million in 200304 and £3,820 million in 200405. The increase in expenditure arises from medical school expansion, the additional costs of increased numbers of non-medical professional staff in training and the additional costs of inflation.
Mr. Byrne: From October 1999 to the date of sale the Government spent £3,175,000 (average £46,691 per month) on building and maintenance works and £1,770,000 (average £26,029 per month) on site security relating to Silverlands.
