Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what mechanisms there are to record the timing and frequency of visits made by health visitors to families with children under the age of five years. 
Dawn Primarolo: Total expenditure on Healthy Start across the United Kingdom between April 2007 and March 2008 (the only financial year for which specific figures are available) was approximately £94 million. This figure does not reflect the full cost of all Healthy Start vouchers issued in that year because retailers have up to six months from the use by date on vouchers to claim payment for them.
The following table shows the estimated number of families supported by Healthy Start in each national health service region in England between 4 August 2008 and 31 August 2008. It also shows the number of individual women and children receiving vouchers in these families.
These figures were provided by the Healthy Start Issuing Unit. Most families will have been supported throughout the whole four-week period, but some will have joined or left the scheme part way through. 16,000 families (19,000 individuals) across the UK who were receiving vouchers during this time could not be matched to a specific country or NHS region using the NHS postcode directory and so are not reflected in this table.
