Fertility

Mr Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what measures his Department is taking to increase awareness among commissioners of the recommendations

13 Mar 2013 : Column 244W

of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guideline on fertility published in February 2013; [147245]


(2) what assessment his Department has made of the recommendation of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guideline on fertility published in February 2013 that up to three full cycles of IVF treatment should be provided to eligible couples. [147246]

Anna Soubry: Infertility affects thousands of couples and can have a devastating impact on their lives. The Department has therefore welcomed the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommendations that in vitro fertilisation treatment should be available at an earlier stage and for more couples that want to have a family. The Department expects local national health service organisations to consider this new guidance when making decisions about offering IVF to their communities.

The level of provision of health services, including fertility treatment, is a matter for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) from 1 April 2013, taking account of the needs of all their population. CCGs will be held to account by the NHS Commissioning Board, who have issued to CCGs a factsheet about commissioning fertility services. This sets out how CCGs should approach commissioning fertility services and take account of the revised NICE fertility guidelines. It can be found at:

http://www.commissioningboard.nhs.uk/files/2013/02/fertility-facts.pdf

The Department has funded Infertility Network UK, the leading infertility patient support group, to produce advice for NHS commissioners in England about standardising eligibility criteria for fertility services. This is signposted in the fertility factsheet.

Heart Diseases: Children

Stuart Andrew: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what assessment he has made of the effect of the recent High Court ruling on the Safe and Sustainable Review of children's heart surgery services on the Independent Reconfiguration Panel commissioned by his Department on that Review; [147667]

(2) what steps he plans to take with regards to the Safe and Sustainable Review of children's heart services in England following the recent High Court ruling that that review was unlawful. [147668]

Anna Soubry: The Secretary of State for Health, my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt), is considering the implications of the Court's ruling for the Independent Reconfiguration Panel's review of the Safe and Sustainable programme and the Joint Committee of Primary Care Trust's (JCPCT) decision.

The safe and sustainable review of children's congenital heart services was a national health service review, independent of Government. It is for the JCPCT and, from 1 April 2013, the NHS Commissioning Board to consider the Court's ruling.

13 Mar 2013 : Column 245W

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Sir Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what comparative assessment he has made of the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients in the UK and other European countries; and if he will make a statement. [147313]

Anna Soubry: The Department has made no assessment of comparative treatment for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in the United Kingdom or other European countries.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment programme is funding a systematic review of evidence on the benefits, harms and costs of treatments for IPF. The review began in May 2012 and is expected to report in mid-2014. In addition, the NIHR is funding two one-year biomedical research fellowships studying IPF.

In addition, the Department has asked the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence to produce a clinical guideline on the diagnosis and management of IPF. The guideline is due to be published in June 2013.

Methadone

Andrew Griffiths: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people being prescribed methadone or other opioid substitutes had their prescription reduced in 2012-13. [147477]

Anna Soubry: I refer my hon. Friend to the written answer I gave him on 4 March 2013, Official Report, column 862W. Data on whether doses of methadone or other opioid substitutes are rising, constant or reducing are not held centrally.

NHS: Public Consultation

Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Health who will be responsible for consulting patients on local NHS developments from 1 April 2013. [147374]

Dr Poulter: All existing national health service trusts will remain obliged, under section 242 of the NHS Act 2006, to involve patients and the public in the planning of service provision, the development and consideration of proposals for changes in the way those services are provided, and decisions affecting the operation of those services.

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 will require clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to involve patients and public in all aspects of the commissioning of health services from 1 April 2013. CCGs have to set out how they will involve people in their planning, and then evidence the impact of that involvement in their annual reports. CCG boards will also have at least two lay members sitting on the board, to secure strong patient and public voice in their decision making.

The NHS Commissioning Board will shortly issue statutory guidance for CCGs on how they can promote the involvement of patients in decisions about their care and treatment, and ensure patients and the public are involved in the planning, development and delivery of health services.

13 Mar 2013 : Column 246W

NHS: Standards

Andrew Gwynne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, pursuant to his answer of 4 March 2013, what the scope and timeline is of the formal audit of practice; whether the proposed audit will consider practice as well as policy; and whether trusts will be able to compare their practice against that of other trusts. [147559]

Dr Poulter: The organisation responsible for carrying out the formal audit and the way its findings will be considered and used is the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists.

I would encourage the hon. Member to write to them directly in order to get the relevant information.

Palliative Care

Sarah Newton: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what opportunities there will be for the third sector to contribute to his Department's end-of-life choice review; [147256]

(2) when his Department's end-of-life choice review will take place; and what format that review will take; [147257]

(3) whether he expects to set out a deadline for the introduction of an end-of-life choice offer as a result of the end-of-life choice review. [147258]

Norman Lamb: We are committed to moving towards a national choice offer to support people's preferences to be cared for and to die at home. This depends on progress in implementing the National End of Life Care Strategy. We have said that we plan to review this in 2013, and departmental officials are currently determining how best to undertake this. We published the fourth annual report on progress of the strategy in October 2012.

Sir Tony Baldry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress he has made in ensuring electronic palliative care co-ordination systems are available in every area of the UK. [147277]

Norman Lamb: The Department, in conjunction with the National End of Life Care Programme, has been supporting implementation of Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems (EPaCCS) in a number of ways.

The roll out of EPaCCS is supported through the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention end of life care workstream. EPaCCS are identified in the workstream as a key tool to record the wishes and preferences for care identified through care planning, including advance care planning, discussions with patients and carers, and to support effective communication between professionals thereby ensuring that these wishes and preferences are met.

An Information Standard, “End of life care co-ordination: core content” (ISB 1580), has also been developed to underpin the implementation and use of EPaCCS through defining a core data set that supports effective co-ordination of care. This can be found at:

www.isb.nhs.uk/library/standard/236

To support this, national interoperability specifications are being developed which information technology systems

13 Mar 2013 : Column 247W

suppliers can then adopt (and be accredited against) to provide a common code of connection for the sharing of palliative care information.

A number of tools have also been developed to support wider adoption. These include the provision of an information sharing and networking portal for EPaCCS on NHS Networks, and the dissemination of a case for change paper, setting out key information to support commissioners and others in developing business cases for the development of an EPaCCS system. More details are available at:

www.endoflifecareforadults.nhs.uk/strategy/strategy/coordination-of-care/end-of-life-care-information-standard

The National End of Life Care Programme has carried out a national survey to find out where EPaCCS have already been implemented, the approaches used and future plans for implementation. Over 30 EPaCCS are now implemented, in progress or in planning.

The National End of Life Care Programme will become part of NHS Improving Quality from 1 April 2013 and is committed to carrying on this work during 2013-14. Ultimately though, any decision to develop an EPaCCS is for local determination.

Sir Tony Baldry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has given of the role which access to (a) 24/7 community nursing and (b) an electronic end-of-life care register might play in achieving the NHS Mandate's objective that the NHS should be seen as a world leader in end-of-life care. [147278]

Norman Lamb: The Department has not made any formal assessment of the role 24 hour, seven day community nursing and an electronic end-of-life care register might play in achieving the NHS Mandate's that the NHS should be seen as a world leader in end-of-life care.

However, increasing choice in the delivery of end-of-life care is a key aim of the Department's End of Life Care Strategy. Macmillan Cancer Support has done important work in assessing the availability of 24 hour, seven day community nursing as an essential part of existing choice in end of life care.

The Department also believes that electronic palliative care registers are an essential tool for helping to making patients' care plans a reality. They are intended to provide instant electronic access to key information about end of life care patients to all health professionals with a need to see it. They have the potential to improve communication, co-ordination and planning and delivery of care, ensuring that a person's wishes and expressed preferences for care are taken into account, for example around resuscitation and preferences about where they would like to be cared for and to die.

Outcomes for the Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems early adopters are encouraging. While sample sizes are still small, some sites report achieving Preferred Place of Death for 70 to 80% of those on a register.

Sir Tony Baldry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the role of (a) care commissioning groups, (b) the NHS Commissioning Board and (c) his Department in achieving the NHS Mandate's objective that the NHS should be seen as a world leader in end-of-life care. [147279]

13 Mar 2013 : Column 248W

Norman Lamb: The Government's mandate to the NHS Commissioning Board for April 2013 to March 2015 includes an objective for the board to improve the experience of care for people at the end of their lives. This will be monitored through an indicator in the NHS Outcomes Framework, based on the VOICES survey of bereaved relatives. Implementation of the End of Life Care Strategy moves to the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) supported by NHS Improving Quality.

The NHS CB will work with clinical commissioning groups to ensure that services match local needs and are of the highest possible standards, in line with the mandate.

Psychiatry: Whyndyke Farm

Mark Hendrick: To ask the Secretary of State for Health when the psychiatric facility at Whyndyke Farm is due to become operational; what the cost of building the facility is expected to be; and what the cost has been to date. [147261]

Anna Soubry: This is a matter for the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

We have written to the trust's Chair, Steve Jones, informing him of your inquiry. He will reply shortly and a copy of the letter will be placed in the Library.

Radiotherapy

Tessa Munt: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) with reference to the 2011 National Radiotherapy Implementation Group Report on Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy, section 12.1, when the National Oversight Group was established; how many times this group has met; on which cancers it has produced evidence-based treatment protocols; and what progress has been made establishing a common dataset; [147501]

(2) with reference to paragraph 2.7 of the 2011 National Radiotherapy Implementation Group Report guidelines on Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT), whether clinical trials of SBRT are taking place for (a) prostate, (b) head and neck, (c) kidney, (d) pancreatic, (e) liver and (f) spine cancer; [147551]

(3) with reference to the 2011 National Radiotherapy Implementation Group Report (NRIG) on Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy, section 8.2, how many times the NRIG subgroup has met; and what recommendations it has made relating to the increased use of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy for cancers of the prostate, head and neck, kidney, pancreas, liver and spine. [147564]

Anna Soubry: The National Radiotherapy Implementation Group (NRIG) report, “Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) Guidelines for Commissioner Providers and Clinicians in England 2011”, was produced by a short life working group that was set up for the purpose of producing the guidance.

The report made a comprehensive assessment of the role and opportunities for SBRT also known as Stereotactic ablative Radiotherapy (SABR) in cancer treatment and set out a number of recommendations, including that a National Oversight Group be created to take the lead on establishing evidence-based prospective treatment protocols for SBRT.

13 Mar 2013 : Column 249W

In response to this recommendation, it was agreed that the United Kingdom SABR Consortium, which meets twice a year, would take on the national oversight role. The consortium has produced guidance that updates the lung, liver and prostate sections of the NRIG document. This guidance has been shared with all members of the consortium. The consortium has advised the Department that it will make the guidance more widely available in due course.

The UK SABR Consortium has advised that there is an agreed dataset being collected by the UK centres delivering SABR treatment. Currently, the data are held at the individual treating centres, though the consortium is planning to pool and review that data in preparation for publication later in the year.

There are ongoing clinical trials internationally examining the use of SBRT in a range of cancer sites. Details of these are available on the ClinicalTrials.gov registry at the following link:

www.clinicaltrials.gov/

The Department's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is not currently funding any clinical trials of SBRT for prostate, head and neck, kidney, pancreatic, liver, or spine cancer. The NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including SBRT. These applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the scientific quality of the proposals made.

Smoking: Bus Services

Sir Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make it his policy to include all sheltered and unsheltered bus stops as a proscribed area for the smoking of tobacco; and if he will make a statement. [147312]

Anna Soubry: The Government do not intend to change the law to make any non-enclosed places, including bus stops without shelters, smoke-free.

It is likely that some bus shelters come within the scope of the smoke-free workplaces and public places legislation in England, which sets out definitions of what a substantially enclosed place is. Where shelters are covered by the law, local authorities' environmental health departments have responsibility for enforcing the legislation, including providing the appropriate signage for the shelters.

Solanum

Mrs McGuire: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment has been made of the spread of solanum infection to the UK; and what the role of nurses is in preventing any such spread. [147389]

Anna Soubry: We have made no such assessment.

Tobacco: Retail Trade

Ian Paisley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to his Department's consultation on standardised packaging of tobacco products, what assessment he has made of whether it would be necessary

13 Mar 2013 : Column 250W

for the Government to purchase the associated intellectual property of affected tobacco companies in order to remove branding from such packaging. [147660]

Anna Soubry: The Government have an open mind on the issue of tobacco packaging. Following the “Consultation on standardised packaging of tobacco product” any decisions to take further policy action on tobacco packaging will be taken only after full consideration is given to the consultation responses, evidence and other relevant information. This will include consideration of the implications for the intellectual property of tobacco companies.

Culture, Media and Sport

Artworks: Scotland

Cathy Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions she has had with the Scottish Government regarding the display and showcasing of the work of Scottish artists and designers in UK embassies. [147331]

Hugh Robertson: There have been no discussions with the Scottish Government regarding the display and showcasing of the work of Scottish artists and designers in UK embassies. The Government Art Collection displays works of art, mainly, by UK artists to promote art and culture in Government buildings around the world. Scottish artists are well represented and the collection includes works by Sir Henry Raeburn, David Roberts, John Duncan Fergusson, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elizabeth Blackadder, Douglas Gordon, Jim Lambie, Claire Barclay and Martin Boyce.

Direct Selling

Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many fines for nuisance calls have been levied by Ofcom in the last 18 months; what the range and total value of such fines was; and what assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the regulatory system relating to nuisance calls. [147076]

Hugh Robertson: The Office of Communications (Ofcom) has issued monetary penalties to two companies, during this period for making silent and abandoned calls to consumers. This consisted of £750,000 and £60,000 for HomeServe and Npower respectively, and further action against other companies is also currently under consideration.

Ofcom and the Information Commissioner’s Office regulate different types of nuisance calls and the Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, my hon. Friend the Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey), has met with them three times since July 2012 to improve the effectiveness of the current regulatory system. Consequently, significant improvements have been achieved in improving information available to consumers through simpler website pages and a new Ofcom Consumer Guide, as well as a focus on improved enforcement action for those found in breach of the regulations. This

13 Mar 2013 : Column 251W

has resulted in regulators using their powers to issue large fines as well as publishing on ICO’s website, the names of the most complained about companies. This can be found at:

http://www.ico.gov.uk/enforcement/action/calls.aspx

Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps she is taking to co-ordinate action on nuisance calls by Ofcom and the Information Commissioner's Office; and if she will make a statement. [147078]

Hugh Robertson: I have met with the Office of Communications (Ofcom) and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) three times since last July and pressed for improved clarity and awareness about their respective roles. This has resulted in clearer information being made available on both websites about the different types of nuisance calls, as well as an improved understanding of the enforcement process across both regulators. In addition, Ofcom and ICO work closely together through a memorandum of understanding (MoU), sharing information that may be helpful to them in their pursuit of companies that break the regulations. I will be meeting ICO and TPS again to see what further improvements can be made.

Internet: Access

Helen Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what proportion of people in each local authority area live within two miles of free public internet access. [147661]

Hugh Robertson: The Government do not have sufficient information on the location of free public internet access to be able to make such an estimate, bearing in mind the wide range of different providers of free public internet access.

Mass Media

Helen Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, pursuant to the answer of 6 November 2012, Official Report, column 526W, on mass media, which newspaper and other media proprietors, editors and senior executives she has met since 30 September 2012. [146834]

Hugh Robertson: The Department regularly publishes details of ministerial meetings with outside interest groups including newspaper and other media proprietors, editors and senior executives, full details of these can be found at the following link:

http://www.transparency.culture.gov.uk/category/other/meetings/

Television: Licensing

Cathy Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimate she has made of the number of pensioners in Kilmarnock and Loudoun constituency who will claim free television licences in (a) 2014, (b) 2015 and (c) 2016. [147320]

Hugh Robertson: Pensioners over the age of 75 are eligible to claim a free TV licence. The BBC does not prepare forecasts for ‘over 75’ licences for any area smaller than the UK. Forecasts are prepared for financial

13 Mar 2013 : Column 252W

years rather than calendar years and are based on the trend in growth of ‘over 75’ licences from year to year. The figures provided in the table have been rounded down to the nearest thousand. As with any forecasts, these figures are subject to change as new information becomes available.

World War I: Anniversaries

Cathy Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in which events the Government plan to participate to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, by parliamentary constituency. [147351]

Hugh Robertson: The Prime Minister has announced that there will be national commemorations to mark the first day of the war on 4 August 2014, the first day of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 2016 and Armistice Day 2018. Additionally, there is a wide range of activity, which is currently being planned, and will be announced in due course.

There will be commemorative activity to recognise the importance of the engagements at Gallipoli, Jutland and Third Ypres (Passchendaele). Alongside these national events, Government are encouraging commemorative activity at a local level. A new Heritage Lottery Fund small grants programme, worth at least £6 million, will encourage young people to discover their local First World War heritage.

Cabinet Office

Electoral Register

Chris Ruane: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what estimate he has made of the number of people eligible to vote but not registered to vote in each (a) nation of the UK and (b) region of England. [148104]

Mr Hurd: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Glen Watson, dated March 2013:

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your question asking what estimate has been made of the number of people eligible to vote but not registered to vote in each (a) nation of the UK and (b) region of England (148104).

ONS does not have the data required to answer your question. Data are collected on the number of people who are registered to vote in the UK, but no data are collected on the number of people who are eligible to vote but who choose not to register.

The ONS population estimates are of the resident population and will include some people who are not eligible to vote. Therefore the number of unregistered electors cannot be calculated based on the difference between the population estimate and the number of registered electors.

13 Mar 2013 : Column 253W

Government Departments: Location

Diana Johnson: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what assessment he has made of the economic and regenerational benefits of moving Government Departments to the regions; what assessment he has made of the potential costs savings to the Government of moving staff and offices out of London; what his policy is on such actions; and if he will make a statement. [147396]

Miss Chloe Smith [holding answer 12 March 2013]: This Government believe that prior to May 2010 millions of pounds of taxpayers' money was wasted by under occupying freehold space within London (and indeed beyond) while at the same time Departments were taking out expensive leases on vanity properties. The current spending controls on Government property, including the moratorium on lease breaks and expiries, will result in a reduction in both the cost and size of the estate. As at end March 2012, the moratorium has resulted in a gross reduction in estate costs of over £312 million since May 2010 and is on track to deliver a further £125 million by the end of the financial year 2012-13.

The location of posts in Departments is decided by its business and operational requirements.

Long-term Unemployed People

Stephen Timms: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many of those currently classified as long-term unemployed have never worked. [147494]

Mr Hurd [holding answer 12 March 2013]: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Glen Watson, dated March 2013:

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many of those currently classified as long-term unemployed have never worked. (147494)

Estimates of unemployment are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). For the period October to December 2012 it was estimated that 871,000 people have been looking for work for 12 months or more, of which 145,000 people have never had a paid job of any kind or a place on a government supported training or employment programme. Estimates are not seasonally adjusted.

As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty. It is estimated that the true value is likely to lie between 115,000 and 176,000.

Older People: Brigg

Andrew Percy: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many people (a) of pensionable age and (b) over 80 years there are in Brigg and Poole constituency. [147490]

Mr Hurd [holding answer 12 March 2013]: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Glen Watson, dated March 2013:

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking
