Tri-n-butyltin maleate is a biocidal active substance and its use in biocidal products in Europe is regulated by the biocidal products directive (BPD, 98/8/EC). The BPD is implemented in the UK under the Biocidal Products Regulations 2001 and part of the Health and Safety Executive (the Biocides and Pesticides Unit) acts as the competent authority for the BPD.
Under the BPD, industry was asked to submit data on those biocidal active substances that it wished to remain on the European market. These data were to be submitted to competent authorities for subsequent evaluation to assess safety both to humans and the environment. No such data on tri-n-butyltin maleate has been submitted to any competent authority and, as a consequence, all biocidal products containing tri-n-butyltin maleate have to be removed from the European market by 1 September 2006.
Mr. Bone: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the Minister of State's Oral Statement of 20 March 2006, Official Report, column 120 and to the answers of 14 February 2006, Official Report, column2030W, on waiting lists/times, and 13 March 2006, Official Report, column 2030W, on waiting lists, what the evidential basis is for the statement that no-one waits more than six months for an operation. 
Latest data for end January 2006 showed that 74 patients (less than 0.1 per cent.) were waiting over six months. This contrasts with the position under the previous administration, when 10 per cent. of patients were waiting over two years.
Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average waiting time for those referred for treatment by GPs in (a) each London primary care trust and (b) each London health authority was in each year since 1996; and if she will make a statement.

Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average remuneration per full-time equivalent NHS general dental practitioner was in the West Lancashire Primary Care Trust area in each year since 1997. 
Ms Rosie Winterton:
Average remuneration per full-time equivalent national health service general dental practitioner in the West Lancashire Primary Care Trust

area alone is not identifiable from the data available centrally.
All estimated average annual net incomes, between 199798 and 200405, of general dental service (GDS) dentists with a reasonable commitment to the GDS are shown in the table. These are calculated by first estimating average gross GDS income of a dentist with a reasonable NHS commitment and then applying estimates of the expenses to earnings ratio covering dentists.
27 Mar 2006 : Column 815W
|Financial year||Estimated average net GDS income (£)|
The income figures cover both estimated fees for treatments and patient capitation as well as other estimated payments such as seniority payments and commitment payments and payments for maternity and sickness. Income from private sources is excluded from these estimates.
When account is taken of the lower expenses ratio for dentists with a higher NHS commitment, the estimated average net GDS income for 200405 in the table would be about £74,000. In 200506, after allowing for the 3.4 per cent. fee increase, the average would be about £76,500 for a dentist with a reasonable NHS commitment.
