To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will estimate the total cost of establishing (a) strategic health authorities and (b) primary care trusts. [110815]

The costs of establishing strategic health authorities and primary care trusts were met from within the financial allocations to the health authorities and are therefore not identifiable. Approximately £63.1 million of central funding was made available between 1999–2000 to 2001–02 to support the establishment of primary care trusts.
