To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent representations he has received about the performance of the London ambulance service; and if he will make a statement.

We have received a number of representations. The London Ambulance Service Board is currently introducing measures to improve performance, including

—Spending £1.5 million on new technology to improve response times.
—Introducing 60 new frontline accident and emergency and patient transport vehicles at a cost of £3.8 million.
—The recent introduction of motor cycles manned by paramedics to overcome traffic congestion problems.
