Notes: 1. Non cash relates to capital charges, depreciation and other non cash items. 2. These figures are indicative and may change during 2008-09. 3. NHS Litigation Authority clinical negligence resources of £1.2 billion excluded from this table and are shown separately on page 148 of the Department’s Annual Report. 4. In 2008-09 General Social Care Council funding, in the report, is shown as being funded from the social services budget rather than from central health budgets, so no funding is shown against central health budgets for that year. 5. In 2008-09 the majority of National Treatment Authority's funding, in the report, is being shown as coming from the drug misuse budget with only a small element shown against 2008-09 central health budgets. In 2007-08 the total funding is shown against the central health budgets.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to page 160 of his Department's Annual Report 2008, if he will provide a breakdown of the arm's length bodies' budgets in figures 9.18 and 9.19 for each financial year. (209140)

Notes: 1. At the time of providing these figures, for the Departmental Report, 2007-08 allocations were still being adjusted and 2008-09 indicative budgets were being issued. The final budgets/allocations for all ALBs may therefore be different. 2. The NHS Purchasing and Supplies Authority is part funded from Department's administration budgets. In 2007-08 the administration funding is not included under the central health budgets line of the Report. The 2008-09 NHS Purchasing and Supplies Authority figure does include the administration funding. 3. In 2008-09 the general and social care council funding, in the report, is shown as being funded from the social services budget rather than from central health budgets, so no funding is shown against central health budgets for that year. 4. In 2008-09 the majority of the National Treatment Agency's funding, in the report, is being shown as coming from the drug misuse budget with only a small element shown against 2008-09 central health budgets.

5. The Commission for Patient and Public Involvement in Health is closing down in 2008-09.
