Health: Bilateral Agreements

Volume 716: debated on Thursday 14 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the United Kingdom has bilateral health agreements with (a) Azerbaijan, (b) Kazakhstan, (c) Georgia, (d) Armenia, (e) Moldova, (f) Guernsey, and (g) the Isle of Man; and if so, whether there are proposals to bring any of those agreements to an end. [HL1010]

The United Kingdom Government have held agreements with all of the countries listed. The agreement with the Channel Islands (which includes Guernsey) ended with effect from 1 April 2009 and the agreement with the Isle of Man is due to end with effect from 1 April 2010. There are no current plans to end the other agreements, which do not involve the UK Government providing a financial allocation.
