Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department (a) has spent and (b) is expected to spend on legal and associated fees in all ongoing legal cases concerning NHS staff. (234359)

The Department has to date spent £65,820.92 on legal and associated fees in all ongoing cases involving NHS staff. We are unable to predict with any degree of accuracy the total likely costs, because these cases are ongoing and, therefore, unresolved.
