To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much of the funding made available under the community hospitals programme (a) had and (b) had not been allocated at the latest date for which figures are available; what timetable he has set for considering further applications for funding under the programme; and if he will make a statement.

We have approved funding for 28 capital schemes, which brings our commitment to £243.5 million from the community hospitals and services fund that has a total value of up to £750 million. We have recently conducted a trawl for local plans for further schemes and are currently considering the results. As a consequence, we have not set a timetable.
