Mr. Byrne: Data on monthly expenditure on patient food is not collected centrally and details of annual expenditure on patient food service are only collected on a voluntary basis for national health service benchmarking purposes. However, data is collected on the average daily cost of feeding one patient and this information is shown in the following table.
The daily cost of feeding one patient, is derived from the central estates return information collection, and is the average of the average daily expenditure on patient

food per patient reported by trusts. These amounts include the gross cost of provisions and salary and non-salary costs involved in its preparation and serving.
|Organisation||Average daily cost of feeding one patient(£)|
|Lancashire Care National Health Service Trust||6.83|

John Bercow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of the funding of placements of children at the Nuffield speech and language unit in each of the last five years was from (a) local education authorities and (b) primary care trusts. 
Jane Kennedy: No discussions have been held between Ministers and the Royal Free Hampstead national health service trust about the future of the Nuffield speech and language unit. It is for the local NHS to make assessments on the work undertaken and results achieved in services provided for the local community, as this is where knowledge and expertise lie. However, my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Community Care (Liam Byrne) held a discussion with the hon. Member during a debate on this matter held on 25 April.
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what advice her Department gives to GPs about the use of the register of obese patients they are required to establish under the provisions of the new General Medical Services Contract; whether the advice includes promoting awareness of slimming on referral and participation in programmes operated by commercial slimming organisations; and if she will make a statement. 
The new quality and outcomes framework for 200607 includes an indicator which rewards practices for maintaining an obesity register. The recording of body mass index for the register will take place in the practice as part of routine care. It is part of normal routine clinical practice for general practitioners to provide advice to patients who are identified as obese.

Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make it her policy when placing material in the Library of the House in response to a parliamentary question to supply a copy of the material to the hon. Member who tabled the question; and if she will make a statement. 
John Hemming: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money had been committed by each primary care trust to purchasing private services at the end of December 2005; and how much has been budgeted by each primary care trust for such activity for the financial year 200506. 
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what her Department's employer contribution rates to the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme are; what assumed rate of return underlies those contribution rates; and what the contribution rate would be if the assumed rate of return was in line with current redemption yield on index-linked gilts. 
As the hon. Gentleman is aware the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme is overseen by the Cabinet Office. It is therefore appropriate, in this
2 May 2006 : Column 1548W
instance, that the Cabinet Office respond to him directly. He should have received a reply from them in response to his questions.
