Mr. Bradshaw: Information on management cost data will be available from the 2007-08 audited accounts. However, this information will not be available until later in the autumn. Information on district nursing spending is not held centrally.
Peter Bottomley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health in relation to the NHS IT system Cerner release zero introduced to the Worthing and Southlands Hospital Trust, what benefits were expected as a result of the introduction of the system; who initiated its introduction; whether the expected benefits have been realised; what estimate he has made of the cost of the introduction; who is responsible for negotiating with contractors for the support and upgrading of the system; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Cerner was selected as a subcontractor for the provision of secondary care systems across the South of England by the then national programme for information technology (NPfIT) local service provider (LSP), Fujitsu. Contracts with LSPs under NPfIT are held and negotiated by NHS Connecting for Health on behalf of the Secretary of State.
The R0 version was the first software release in a programme of continuing releases, in accordance with the aims of the NPfTT. R0 is therefore the first step towards a clinically rich, integrated system whose benefits will include, over time, a patient administration system with integration with other systems and sophisticated reporting; order communications and diagnostics reporting, including all pathology and radiology tests and tests ordered in primary care; and scheduling for beds, tests and theatres.
The Cerner product was introduced as part of the normal system deployment process managed by a joint team from Fujitsu and the strategic health authorities with the support of NHS Connecting for Health.
The cost to Fujitsu of local deployments is covered within the overall LSP contract value. Information on any separate local costs incurred by Worthing and Southlands Hospital Trust arising from the deployment is not held centrally. This is normally part of the local financial planning process and the benefits are identified in the business case, although it is not expected that the full benefits will be realised until subsequent releases have been implemented.
Responsibility for system support and software upgrading over the lifetime of the system lies with the LSP, and the cost is provided for in the LSP contract. Any additional or bespoke services requested by the trust are a matter between the trust and the LSP.
Jenny Willott: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions for how many cases the Child Support Agency has paid HM Revenue and Customs for referrals and income disclosure in each year since 1993; and if he will make a statement. 
In reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about the Child Support Agency, the Secretary of State promised a substantive reply from the Chief Executive.
You asked the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, for how many cases the Child Support Agency has paid HM Revenue and Customs for referrals and income disclosure in each year since 1993; and if he will make a statement. 
Under the Service Level Agreement between the Child Support Agency and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the Agency makes referrals to HMRC for non resident parent trace and earnings information. An agreed charge against the Agency is made for each referral to cover HMRC expenditure.
Such information as is available is set out in the attached table, which shows separately the number of requests dealt with by HMRC where the Agency has made a request for information on the non-resident parent's income, and those made to trace the non-resident parent.
Neither the Agency nor HMRC hold any details of referrals prior to 2002. Data is not available in either organisation concerning trace enquiries prior to 2005.
