Department of Health form KH03
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place in the Library a copy of the minutes of the 15 October 2007 meeting of the National Child Health Immunisation Board. 
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans his Department has to make use of data on the National Identity Register when it is established; and what the estimated annual cost to his Department of that use is. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The Department will be working with the Home Office prior to the introduction of the National Identity Scheme to establish how identity information held on the proposed National Identity Register might be used to provide access to public services. It is too early in the process to establish the detailed costs and benefits.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 5 December 2007, Official Report, column 1320W, on NHS: finance, (1) what the statutory minimum of public dividend capital is that a financially challenged trust is expected to repay annually; and what procedures are in place to report to Parliament the liability contingent upon a write-off of any part of the (a) principal and (b) interest on (i) public dividend capital and (ii) loans; 
(2) what the statutory minimum repayment of cash support advanced to NHS trusts in the financially challenged trusts regime is; what his policy is on requiring such repayments; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Bradshaw [holding answer 18 December 2007]: There is no statutory minimum payment for either public dividend capital dividends or capital. However, national health service trusts in receipt of public dividend capital are expected to make a dividend repayment currently set at 3.5 per cent. of the forecast average value of net relevant assets.
The period of the loan is agreed with each trust. NHS trusts make equal six monthly payments of principal over the period of the loan. Interest is payable six monthly on the outstanding balance. The interest rate is the relevant national loan fund rate for the day of the loan, and varies with the term of the loan.
