To ask the Secretary of State for Health what research projects were commissioned by his Department from the Personal Social Services Research Unit for the purposes of informing the Green Paper on Shaping the Future of Care Together; and how much that unit was paid for each such project. (310100)

The Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) undertook a rolling programme of work for the Department in connection with the Green Paper under the terms of a specification that was reviewed and agreed at regular intervals. The standard specification was supplemented by a number of ad hoc requests.

The total cost to the Department of the PSSRU input was £280,000 in 2008-09 and £128,000 in 2009-10.
