|(1) Includes middle schools as deemed.|
(2) Includes maintained secondary schools, city technology colleges and academies (including all-through academies).
(3) Includes schools with at least one enrolment aged between five and 15.
(4) Persistent absentees are defined as having 64 or more sessions of absence (authorised and unauthorised) during the year, typically over 20 per cent. overall absence rate.
(5) The number of persistent absentees expressed 86 a percentage of the total number of enrolments.
(6) Those schools counted in the 'more than 40 per cent.' category are also included in all the lower categories. Similarly, for the 'more than 30 per cent.' and 'more than 20 per cent.' categories.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) elective and (b) emergency bed days were recorded in the Hospital Episodes Statistics database as having been accounted for by (i) haematological, (ii) gastrointestinal, (iii) bowel and (iv) lung cancer patients
in (A) total, (B) each primary care trust and (C) each cancer network in each year since 1997-98; and what the cost was to the public purse of those bed days accounted for by patients with each type of cancer. 
Ann Keen: Information on the finished consultant episode bed days in which an elective and emergency admission took place and where the primary diagnosis was lung cancer, bowel cancer, upper gastrointestinal cancer and haematological cancer has been placed in the Library.
Mr. Baron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) admissions and (b) emergency admissions for (i) lung cancer, (ii) bowel cancer, (iii) upper gastrointestinal cancer and (iv) haematological cancer patients in (A) England, (B) each primary care trust and (C) each cancer network were recorded in the Hospital Episodes Statistics database in each of the last five years. 
Ann Keen: Information on the count of finished admission episodes (FAEs) and emergency admissions where the method of admission was emergency, and where the primary diagnosis was lung cancer, bowel cancer, upper gastrointestinal cancer and haematological cancer, has been placed in the Library.
Mr. Baron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he made of expenditure on (a) cancer care, (b) lung cancer care, (c) bowel cancer care, (d) haematological cancer care and (e) upper gastrointestinal cancer care in (i) England, (ii) each cancer network area and (iii) each primary care trust in each of the last five years; how much was spent on (A) in-patient costs excluding those relating to surgery, (B) surgery including daycare and in-patient stays, (C) drugs including the cost of medicine preparation and administration, (D) outpatients including diagnostics, first and follow-up appointments, (E) radiotherapy, (F) specialist palliative care excluding that provided by the voluntary sector and (G) other costs in each of those years; and whether the methodology used to make those estimates was the same as that used to produce the chart on page 119 of his Department's Cancer Reform Strategy, published on 3 December 2007. 
Ann Keen: Tables showing estimated expenditure on cancer care, lung cancer care, lower gastro-intestinal cancer care, haematological cancer care and upper gastrointestinal cancer care in England, by each cancer network area and by each primary care trust (PCT), have been placed in the Library.
Information on cancer care has been provided for England and PCTs for the last five years. Information on cancer care has been provided for cancer networks from 2004-05, as this is the first year that the information became available. Information for cancer care by tumour
site has been provided from 2006-07 as this is the first year that data was collected at sub-category level for a number of tumour types. Bowel cancer care is included in the lower gastro-intestinal cancer care data.
The information requested from questions A-G is not routinely available. The estimated total national health service spend on cancer care represented in the graph on page 119 of the "Cancer Reform Strategy" was an analysis commissioned specifically for inclusion in the Strategy. It was based on a wide range of data from 2005-06, and the sources of this data are quoted in the Strategy. An estimated NHS spend on cancer care under the same categories of that graph is not available for any other years, and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
However, this will be looked at as part of a national audit of the demand for unfunded drugs. The audit, which was recommended by Professor Sir Mike Richards's review, 'Improving access to medicines for NHS patients', is currently being developed and is expected to report in the spring of 2011.
Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department has spent in (a) legal fees and (b) compensation on legal cases concerning remuneration of its employees in each of the last 10 years. 
Phil Hope: Since 2006, there have been no legal challenges reaching an employment tribunal on matters concerning remuneration. Records were not held centrally prior to 2006 and to collect this information would incur disproportionate costs.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what statutory instruments he plans to lay before Parliament in the remainder of the current session; and on what dates he plans to lay those instruments. 
Phil Hope: There are no current plans to lay any further statutory instruments under the affirmative procedure in the current session. A number of statutory instruments to be laid under the negative procedure are under consideration at any time.
The 2009 Civil Service People Survey results for the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have been placed in the Library. These results are also available on the MHRA website at:
reporting thefts to the police;
guidance and training to staff on how to protect departmental property;
marking departmental property with forensic dye and high visibility labels; and
recording lost or stolen items on a police property register.
Mr. Purchase: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) doctors and (b) nurses were employed in the NHS in Wolverhampton (i) in 1997 and (ii) at the latest date for which figures are available. 
Ann Keen: The information is not available in the format requested. However, the number of consultants, doctors in training and national health service hospital and community health services (HCHS) qualified nursing staff, at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust as at 30 September, for 1997 and the latest date available, is shown in the following table:
