To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how much was spent by each of her Department’s executive agencies in each Government Office region in the most recent year for which figures are available; (116669)

(2) which of the executive agencies of her Department have regional offices outside London.

The Department has two executive agencies. These are:

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA does not hold records of spend in each of the government regions. The MHRA have no regional offices outside London; and

The NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA). PASA does not hold records of spend in each of the government regions. PASA has three offices in Chester, Reading and Sheffield. The office in Reading is also the agency’s head office. They are not regional offices as such but from where business is undertaken.
