Community Assets Programme

Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what assessment he has made of the performance of the community assets programme. [211628]

Edward Miliband: The community assets programme received a large number of excellent bids in areas from the arts to social enterprise to youth services. The programme itself and the difference it is making will be fully evaluated in 2010.

Civil Servants: Pay

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his policy is on linking Civil Service pay to productivity. [211623]

Mr. Watson: Civil service pay awards reflect an individual’s outputs, results and performance against pre-agreed objectives. Under the delegated arrangements for staff below the senior civil service, Departments and agencies are required to have reward systems that include a close and effective link between pay and performance. For the senior civil service, for which pay is managed centrally by the Cabinet Office, non-consolidated payments (which have to be earned each year) are used to incentivise staff to deliver business objectives successfully.

Departmental Pensions

Danny Alexander: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his most recent estimate is of the unfunded liability in present value terms of each public sector pension scheme for which his Department is responsible; and on what assumptions for (a) discount and (b) longevity the estimate is based. [200746]

Mr. Watson: Since the introduction of resource accounting in 1999-2000 annual estimates of the unfunded liability for the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme are published each year in the resource accounts of Cabinet Office: Civil Superannuation, copies of which are available in the Libraries of the House.

The most recent set of resource accounts are for 2006-07 and these contain the discount rate assumption. The scheme actuary used the same longevity assumptions as applied at the full scheme valuation as at 31 March 2003. A copy of this report, “Review of the Accruing Superannuation Liability Charges (ALSCs) as at 31 March 2003” is available on the civil service pensions website at:

Before the introduction of resource accounting in 1999-2000 the accounting arrangements in place did not include estimates of pension liabilities. However, for the estimated liability in 1997-98, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given in the other place by the noble Lord McIntosh of Haringey to the noble Lord Blackwell on 4 July 2000, Official Report, House of Lords, column WA129.

Alcoholic Drinks: Misuse

Jon Trickett: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the timescale is for the Government’s research on possible relationships between the pricing and availability of alcohol and harms associated with excessive alcohol consumption; what issues will be considered in that research; who will be consulted as part of the research; and whether the research will address the below-cost selling of alcohol by supermarkets. [207963]

Dawn Primarolo: The Department’s Policy Research Programme has commissioned a single team comprising different disciplines and expertise from Sheffield University, School of Health and Related Research to carry out an independent review of the evidence on how and in what circumstances price and promotion drive consumption of alcohol and harms from alcohol.

This includes looking at how advertising, price and promotion of alcohol affect consumption and the potential implications of changes in the price and promotion on health, crime, the alcohol industry and consumers.

The review has two phases:

The Review is an independent review of evidence. Any Government proposals for legislation or other action arising from the review would be the subject of formal consultation. The review team began work in the first week of January 2008 and are expected to report by summer 2008. Some of the issues considered under Phase 1 include discounting, price-based promotions below-cost selling and advertising.

Continuing Care

Mr. Byers: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people receive NHS continuing care services in each primary care trust; and how many people per 50,000 of each trust area's population this represents. [211086]

Mr. Ivan Lewis [holding answer 13 June 2008]: The information requested is shown in the following table.
