To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what steps have been taken to allocate the £1 billion funding proposed in the public health White Paper between (a) health trainers, (b) sexual health services, (c) school nurses and (d) other services; and if he will make a statement; (148720)

(2) what representations he has received on ring-fencing the £1 billion funding proposed in the public health White Paper for health trainers, sexual health services, school nurses and other services; and if he will make a statement.

Primary care trusts were notified of their revenue allocations for 2006-07 and 2007-08 in February 2005. The allocations separately identify funding to support the initiatives set out in the White Paper “Choosing Health: making healthy choices easier” a copy of which is available in the Library. PCTs determine how to use the funding allocated to them.
