Robert Key: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the likely change in the number of cases of Sennybridge disease when UK derogations from European animal health regulation EC998/2003 expires in July 2010; and if he will make a statement. 
Dawn Primarolo: 'Sennybridge Disease' is a vernacular term for cystic hydatid disease that occurs particularly in certain areas of Wales, and is caused by infection with the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. The requirements of the UK Pet Travel Scheme for tapeworm treatment for pets entering the UK under the scheme, as permitted under the derogation from EC Regulation 998/2003, are aimed at preventing tapeworm infections that are exotic to the UK, such as Echinococcus multilocularis, that cause the more serious human alveolar hydatid disease. An assessment of the potential risks to public health that could arise from introduction of Echinococcus multilocularis into the UK has been made and is currently being considered across Government in developing our future strategy for the UK Pet Travel Scheme.
Mike Penning: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what budget within the East of England strategic health authority has been allocated to lowering the number of smokers in the latest period for which figures are available. 
Dawn Primarolo: The information requested is not held centrally. Allocations for the national health service Stop Smoking Services are made to primary care trusts, which then decide how best to provide the service to their communities. The hon. Member may wish to raise this locally with NHS East of England.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place in the Library a copy of the partial regulatory impact assessment on (a) the Termination of Pregnancy Bill of Session 2005-06 and (b) the Termination of Pregnancy Bill of Session 2006-07; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Vara: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people have been on the waiting list for organ transplant in each year since 1997, broken down by organ awaited; and if he will make a statement. 
Ann Keen: The following table provides the number of registrations on the waiting list for each organ on 31 December in each year since 1997. The national list can change on a daily basis as people are removed from the transplant list because their clinical condition deteriorates and later rejoin when their condition improves. We are taking action to enable more people to benefit from a transplant. Implementation of the Organ Donation Taskforce recommendations published in January 2008, should see donation rates rise by 50 per cent. by 2013.

Anne Main: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change on which occasions Ministers in his Department have met senior executives of (a) British Energy and (b) EDF in each of the last 12 months. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: Prior to the creation of the Department for Energy and Climate Change responsibility for energy matters lay with the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR). Within the last 12 months Ministers from DECC and BERR have met senior executives from (a) British Energy and (b) EDF on the following occasions:

Chris Ruane: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what the amount of emissions of (a) ammonias, (b) nitrogen oxides, (c) particulates and (d) sulphur dioxide in the UK was in each year since 1990. 
These results, published as National Statistics by DEFRA on 13 March 2008, are the latest statistics on air emissions for the UK. The 1990-2006 figures in this Statistics Release are from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory for 1970-2006, produced for DEFRA and the Devolved Administrations by AEA Energy and Environment. This inventory covers all air pollutants excluding greenhouse gases.
Please also refer to the Air Quality e-digest statistics page which is currently published on the DEFRA website. This describes the process of measuring emissions and the emissions inventory in detail.
