8 Oct 2007 : Column 270W—continued

Issued in 2006-07:

Departments: Consultants

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which private consultancy firms (a) his Department and (b) agencies which report to his Department engaged in each of the last three years; which programmes or projects each firm worked on; and what the approximate cost to the Department or agency concerned was of each engagement. [155871]

Mr. Bradshaw: The Department does not collect information on projects awarded to private consultancy firms by the Department and its agencies in the format requested. To do so would attract disproportionate cost.

A new system will be introduced in April 2008 called SHOWA, which will be able to gather such information for the Department.

Departments: Lisbon Agenda

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what policies his Department has adopted to assist in the United Kingdom’s fulfilment of the Lisbon Agenda criteria. [155844]

Dawn Primarolo: A healthy population is a key driver to achieving economic growth. This is at the core of the Department’s policies to improve and modernise health services and to prevent illness and morbidity through activities such as health promotion.

A key part of this will be to reduce health inequalities in the United Kingdom. The Department is working to a public service agreement target to reduce inequalities in health outcomes by 10 per cent. by 2010.

Departments: Pay

Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 11 July 2007, Official Report, column 1552W, on Departments: pay, (1) how many (a) civil servants are on each payscale and (b) consultants are on each banding within the Department’s Commercial Directorate; [154653]

(2) whether the commercial directorate contractor bandings refer to (a) per hour, (b) per day, (c) per week, (d) per month or (e) per annum. [154802]

Dawn Primarolo: The Commercial Directorate contracts interims for a specified piece of work or time period. The bandings are an internal control tool created by and used solely by the Commercial Directorate and refer to day rates. The number of interims (headcount) by bandings in the Commercial Directorate at 1 October 2007 is shown in the following table.
