Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the decision was taken to require budget reductions to cover the budget deficit of the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust; what discussions he has had with members of the Trust on the recent budget reductions; and what assessment he has made of the effect on patients of the planned reductions. 
The board of the University Hospitals of Leicester National Health Service Trust (UHL) agreed a package of savings at their board meeting on 5 October 2006. The trust board also discussed making further savings at an extraordinary board meeting on 19 October 2006.
My right hon. Friend has had no discussions with members of the trust on budget issues in her role as Secretary of State for Health. However, as a Member for a Leicester constituency, she does have a range of discussions with the trust and others on local matters. This has included meetings with the chief executive, the chairman and the director of strategic development of the trust on a number of occasions throughout the year.

Mr. Iain Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps the police take to investigate violent assaults images of which have been posted onto the internet; how many prosecutions have resulted from such investigations in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Coaker: The police investigate violent assaults, images of which have been posted onto the internet, in the same way in which they undertake any criminal investigation. They have a duty to investigate any report or allegation of a criminal offence having been committed, and will seek to obtain evidence of the alleged offence. Then, in collaboration with the Crown Prosecution Service, they will decide whether they have sufficient evidence to proceed with a prosecution, and whether it is in the public interest to do so.
It is not possible to identify violent assaults, images of which have been posted onto the internet, as a separate category, and therefore not possible to provide information on how many prosecutions have resulted from such investigations in each of the last five years.
