NHS: Finance

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department spent on each programme funded from its centrally-managed budget in each year since 1997-98; and how much his Department plans to spend on each programme it plans to fund from its centrally-managed budget in 2010-11; and how much such planned expenditure on each planned programme is (a) committed and (b) uncommitted. (324515)

It would be at disproportionate cost for the Department to list expenditure from each individual central budget programme for the years in question due to the very large number of budgets and several departmental reorganisations.

2010-11 central budget programme plans have not yet been finalised. The Department does not report their central budgets on a committed/not-committed basis.

While the detailed (by programme) expenditure is not readily available, we do routinely publish planned expenditure for centrally managed budgets in the annual departmental report publication. The following table provides departmental report references for this expenditure.

Aggregated expenditure for the centrally managed budgets from 1997-98 to 2008-09 is contained in the operating cost statement in each year of the Department's Resource Accounts publication. However, these data do not show the expenditure by detailed programme. We are planning on making the equivalent 2009-10 expenditure data available in July 2010.
