Mark Durkan: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of health service staff in England have been (a) notified of their pay band under Agenda for Change and (b) assimilated into the new pay structures. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: From the centrally available data, as at the end of March 2006, 99 per cent. of staff, excluding foundation trusts, had been notified of their pay band under agenda for change and had been assimilated onto the new pay system. Central monitoring was then suspended, except for trusts, excluding Foundation Trusts, where 100 or more staff remain to be assimilated. In these trusts it is estimated that fewer than 400 staff remain to be assimilated.
Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many chief executives of (a) regional health authorities and (b) strategic health authorities renewed cars provided by their employers within two years before being made redundant since 1996; what the cost to the public purse was of providing such cars; how many such cars were purchased by employees when they were made redundant; and how much revenue was received as a result of those purchases. 
Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many chief executives of (a) regional health authorities and (b) strategic health authorities were given pay rises within two years before being made redundant since 1996; and what average percentage increase was awarded in such cases. 
Mr. Stephen O'Brien:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of whether
NHS service level changes have disproportionately affected services that do not yet have a tariff set. 
Andy Burnham: Any changes, or proposed changes, to services are a matter for the national health service locally. We would expect a whole range of factors to be taken into consideration in such circumstances.
Philip Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) foreign nationals and (b) other EU citizens were treated on the NHS in the latest year for which figures are available; and what the cost was to the NHS in that year. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: It is not possible to provide the information requested. Successive Governments have not required the NHS to provide statistics on the number of foreign nationals seen, treated or charged under the provisions of the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 1989, as amended, nor any costs involved.
