To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many UK nationals have benefited from reduced rates when attending the Peto Institute since the payment by the UK Government to the Institute in 1991. [116335]

The Department of Health does not collect information regarding the Peto Institute. However, the following information has been obtained from the British embassy in Hungary. According to Article 4 of the bilateral agreement, United Kingdom residents have received a reduction in conductive education fees on the standard fees for non-Hungarians since 14 September 1998. In addition, some British students receive conductive training, which will enable them to provide conductive education in the UK.

For the 2000–01 academic year, 12 UK residents received conductive training and 18 received conductive education. An extra 15 students received conductive education during the 2001 summer camp. For the 2001–02 academic year, 18 UK residents received conductive education and 18 received conductive training. In addition, reduced rates have been offered to UK residents staying at either the Peto Institute's hostel or hotel.
