Mr. Pickles: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what (a) inspections and (b) audits the Food Standards Agency undertakes of local authority premises; and what plans there are to incorporate such inspections into comprehensive area assessments. 
Dawn Primarolo: Local authorities are responsible for the inspection of food premises within their area. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is responsible for the audit and monitoring of all local authority food law enforcement activities against a standard which forms part of the framework agreement on local authority food law enforcement. This includes audit of the local authority food law enforcement services and their risk-based food business inspection programmes. Details of the framework agreement, and published local authority monitoring and audit findings, are available from the FSA's website at:
Helen Southworth: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people living in (a) Warrington, (b) the North West and (c) England have been diagnosed with (i) coronary heart disease, (ii) diabetes and (iii) food related allergies. 
Ann Keen: The Department does not collect information in the form requested. However, the national Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), which many general practices participate in, records the number of people recorded on certain practice disease registers. Such registers exist for both coronary heart disease (CHD) and diabetes.
The CHD register includes all patients who have had coronary artery revascularisation procedures such as
coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). However, patients with Cardiac Syndrome X will not generally be included in the CHD register.
The diabetes register includes patients aged 17 years and over with diabetes mellitus. As the care of children with diabetes mellitus is generally under the control of specialists, the diabetes register generally excludes those patients age 16 and under.
