David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the total cost was of overnight accommodation for (a) civil servants, (b) special advisers and (c) Ministers in his Department staying overnight in (i) mainland Great Britain, (ii) Northern Ireland, (iii) the Republic of Ireland and (iv) other countries in the last 12 months. 
Mr. Bradshaw: We do not record the costs of overnight accommodation separately for Ministers, civil servants and special advisers, as this is not a requirement of our statutory reporting. Neither do we record this information by country of destination. To collect the information requested would incur disproportionate costs.
Details of the cost of overseas travel for Cabinet Ministers, including the cost of travel and accommodation are contained in the Overseas Travel by Cabinet Ministers list. The latest list for the period 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2007 was published on 25 July 2007 and is available at:

diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, haemophilus influenzae type B, (DTwP/Hib) vaccinenone (as this vaccine was no longer used in the childhood vaccination programme);

Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 20 February 2008, Official Report, column 804W, on dietary supplements, how many nutritional support products were dispensed in the community in each year since 1997, broken down by primary care trust area; and what estimate he has made of the number of individual patients who required nutritional support items in the community in the last year for which figures are available. 
Dawn Primarolo: Information on the number of nutritional support products dispensed in the community by primary care trust from 2003 to 2006 has been placed in the Library. Data for earlier years are not available. The Department has made no estimate of the number of individual patients requiring such items.

Some house officer and foundation 1 year staff will have a full registration, although the majority of these staff will have provisional registration status.

Lynne Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money has been spent on cannabis cessation services in each primary care trust in each of the last five years; how much has been allocated for 2008-09; and whether he has plans to integrate such services with smoking cessation services. 
Dawn Primarolo: Since 2001, the Department and the Home Office have provided specific resources for drug treatment in the form of the pooled drug treatment budget. This funding is allocated to the 149 drug action teams across the country to use, along with local mainstream funding, to provide for treatment and services according to the specific needs of each locality. We do not hold information on how much of this funding was spent on treatment and services for cannabis.
Chris McCafferty: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he has taken to (a) monitor and (b) encourage the implementation of National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines on the assessment and treatment of people with fertility problems; and if he will make a statement. 
We are working with the patient support organisation Infertility Network UK to help primary care trusts (PCTs) share best practice in the provision of fertility services and move to the implementation of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence recommendations. To build on the progress being made we are establishing an expert group to advise the project and consider how to help PCT commissioners.
Mr. Sanders: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) general practitioners and (b) NHS dentists there were per head of population in (i) England and (ii) Torbay constituency in each year since 1997.
