Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people receive continuing care funding in each primary care trust area; and of those how many have been diagnosed with some form of dementia. 
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 15 October 2008, Official Report, column 1348W, on dementia: drugs, what the reasons are for the time taken to publish the national dementia strategy. 
Phil Hope: The Department has had to take into account the views expressed at over 50 consultation events and in over 500 written responses received. The Department also need to take into account all the financial implications before the final strategy and implementation plan are published. A great deal of work is involved and this has taken longer than had been originally been anticipated.
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much Government funding was provided for medical research into dementia in (a) 2006-07 and (b) 2007-08; and what percentage of the health research budget this represented in each year. 
Phil Hope: National health service support for degenerative neurological disorder research and National Institute for Health Research investment in dementia research amounted in 2006-07 to £22.8 million. The Medical Research Council (MRC) spent £6.4 million on dementia research in the same year. This total expenditure of £29.2 million amounts to some 2.5 per cent. of the combined Departmental research and development and MRC budgets for the year.

Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many citizens juries his Department has held since 1 July 2007; what the cost was of each; what issues were discussed at each event; and how many (a) Ministers and (b) members of the public attended each event. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Since July 2007, the Department has run two day-long sets of deliberative events, or citizens juries, in nine strategic health authority (SHA) areas as part of the engagement programme of the NHS Next Stage Review. The purpose of the events was to hear the views of staff, patients and stakeholders to feed into the review.
With regard to the first event on 18 September 2007, I refer the right hon. Member to the written answer given to her on 30 October 2007, Official Report, column 1219W. Summaries of the discussions and those who attended are available on the reviews website at:
The second day of deliberative events in the nine SHA regions was held on 24 January 2008 and comprised of a total of 999 people, of which, two thirds of the participants in each region were patients and public, with one third staff. The total cost of these events was £1,014,506.76.
Lead clinicians in each SHA gave an overview of the key points in Lord Darzis interim report and also presented a summary of some of the emerging findings of their local work on the clinical pathways. The day was composed of a mix of table discussions, presentations and films for information, plus electronic polling on key questions on the pathways.
John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of children under the age of 11 years in England have a parent who has had contact with a drug service, as recorded by Drug Action Team statistics in (a) Nottinghamshire and (b) England. [Official Report, 18 December 2008, Vol. 485, c. 9MC.]
Dawn Primarolo: The National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) collects data from drug services about clients in structured drug treatment and the treatment they receive, these include whether the client being treated is a parent of a child aged 16 or under or is living with a child aged 16 or under.
The number of clients in Nottinghamshire, in structured drug treatment in 2007-08, who are parents of a child aged 16 or under, or who are living with a child aged 16 or under is given in the following table, along with the total number of such clients for the whole of England. However, these are relatively new data items, whose collection started in April 2006, and as such are not as complete as other NDTMS data, therefore the following figures must be treated as indicative only.
clients who are parents of children aged 16 or under may not be currently living with their child, i.e. the child may be living with the clients partner, living with other family member or be in care;
clients who are living with a child may not be the childs parent; and
it is possible that there is overlap between these two groups.
Additionally, Nottinghamshire County Drug and Alcohol Action Team recently published a needs assessment on young people and drug treatment, estimating there to be 2,424 children and young people with parents in drug treatment during 2006-07 and up to 22,000 children and young people with parents with problematic alcohol use. A copy of the needs assessment has been placed in the Library. These are local estimates, not verified National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse (NTA) data.
Following the focus on drug-using parents in the new drug strategy Drugs: protecting families and communities
(2008), published by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, the NTA will be working with local drugs partnerships to improve the services available to parents who misuse drugs. Partnerships will receive local information on drug treatment clients who are parents, which they will be able to use in their treatment planning to help improve local service provision to this client group.
