To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many memory clinics there are; and how many memory clinics he intends to establish by what date under the provisions of the National Dementia Strategy; (257560)

(2) how many staff he expects to be employed in each memory clinic, as referred to in the National Dementia Strategy;

(3) what estimate he has made of the average (a) initial start-up costs and (b) annual operating costs of a memory clinic; and how much he has allocated to memory clinics in each financial year until 2010-11.
