Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which NHS trusts (a) paid and (b) did not pay 95 per cent. or more of undisputed invoices within contracts terms or 30 days where no terms had been agreed in (i) 2005-06, (ii) 2006-07 and (iii) 2007-08; and what the monetary value of those invoices was in each case in each year. 
Mr. Bradshaw: National health service prompt performance against the 30 day target is reported in annual accounts. Year-on-year performance for NHS organisations (excluding foundation trusts but including the relevant part of the year for part-year foundation trusts) has been placed in the Library.
Mr. Bacon: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what fines have been (a) levied against and (b) paid by CSC for late delivery of the Lorenzo system; whether local service providers will be paid for upgrades from interim solutions to Lorenzo; and whether the local service providers will pay hospitals' costs incurred in upgrading from such interim solutions where they have been installed. 
Mr. Bradshaw: National programme for information technology contracts do not contain provision for fines, but do provide for delay deductions to be paid by the local service provider (LSP) should the LSP fail to achieve certain key milestones. Under these arrangements some £22.7 million has to date been paid by the Computer Sciences Corporation, some of which has been earned back.
The LSP is paid for all deployments including upgrades from agreed interim solutions to Lorenzo. The deployment of interim solutions allows the trust to gain early benefit from business change that will be required when Lorenzo is implemented.
The local implementation costs of national programme systems and services, including upgrading from agreed interim systems are paid by the NHS bodies that benefit from them and they receive funding out of normal NHS allocations.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the answer of 12 November 2008, on NHS: information and communications technology, if he will place in the Library a copy of each of the breach of contract notices sent to Fujitsu. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Publication of the breach of contract notices issued to Fujitsu, in the context of ongoing negotiations to reach an agreement with the company, would put that objective at risk and could potentially compromise the Department's position in any possible future litigation. Either outcome would or would be likely to cause prejudice to the commercial interests of the Department.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the answer of 12 November 2008, on NHS: information and communications technology, how many contractor event of default notices have been issued; on what dates and to whom such notices have been issued; what the reasons for issue were in each case; and if he will place in the Library a copy of each such notice. 
Mr. Bradshaw: As part of the normal contractual processes, a number of contractor event of default notices have been issued, reflecting operational matters identified during the normal course of contract delivery that need to be addressed. The majority of the matters identified have been addressed using the existing contractual remedies.
