The website was contracted out to an agency to produce, at a cost of £74,228. No record has been kept of civil servants time spent on the project, as this has been absorbed within existing staff time and costs. The cost of hosting for the first year is £1,250.

Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the oral answer of the Paymaster General on 25 January 2007, Official Report, column 1547, to the hon. Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (Mr. Moore), what steps he is taking to improve the procedures for recovering overpaid tax credits from couples who have split up; and if he will make a statement. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: The National Burn Care Group (NBCG) has been carrying forward the recommendations of the burn care review. The purpose is to ensure that burn care services move towards care that is seamlessly delivered by a network of specialised, accredited and progressive services. The work is led by the national health service and is due to be completed by April 2011.
There is no funding allocated specifically for the running costs of the major burn care services. Funding has been made to the NBCG to fund initiatives that will improve the quality of burn services. Normal running costs are met from funds provided by primary care trusts from their overall allocations.
Current tariffs for major burns care services have been considered, and continue to be considered as part of an ongoing process involving the burn community, specialist commissioners, and representatives of the NBCG members.
Dr. Francis: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what discussions she has had recently with (a) carers organisations and (b) educational bodies on improving the well being of carers through access to skills, learning and leisure opportunities; and if she will make a statement; 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The Secretary of State has had no recent discussions regarding aspects of the Carers (Equal Opportunities) Act 2004. As part of the new deal for carers, the Department has committed to developing the Prime Ministers 1999 Strategy for Carers. An inter-departmental group, whose members will include the three national carers organisations, is being formed to focus on this work which is likely to include consideration of carers access to learning and leisure opportunities. As the work develops, other key stakeholders will be involved and consulted.
