Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the effects of the trend in the UK household savings ratio over the period 1997 to 2006; and if he will make a statement. 
Since 1997 the Government have: introduced the Individual Saving Account (ISA) so that everyone has access to a tax-advantaged savings scheme; introduced the Child Trust Fund (CTF) so that in the future all children will enter adulthood with a financial asset regardless of family background, and piloted the Saving Gateway to explore ways in which matched funding can promote saving in lower income households.
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) aggregate gross value of the total expected cash payments under all current and approved future private finance initiative contracts and (b) estimated current capital value of all existing and future private finance initiative contracts is. 
Andy Burnham: As part of the long-term vision of the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review, the Government have consulted widely the implications of an ageing population on public services such as long-term care for the elderly. In addition to those listed, this work has benefited from the input of other groups with whom the Department of Health, the Department of Communities and Local Government, the Department for Work and Pensions and Her Majesty's Treasury have engaged on related issues.
