LORD CHANCELLOR'S DEPARTMENT
Children and Family Services
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department when she will publish the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service's Corporate Plan for 2002 to 2006. 
Ms Rosie Winterton:
The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) has published its Corporate Plan today. Copies of the Corporate Plan have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. Further copies of the Corporate Plan may be obtained from CAFCASS.
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what steps she is taking to improve enforcement performance and if she will make a statement. 
The Lord Chancellor has today announced challenging targets for Magistrates Courts Committees for 200203 for enforcement of financial and non-financial penalties, as follows:
Enforcement of Financial Penalties
An increase of five per cent on the 200001 national average payment rate, i.e rising from 63 per cent. to 68 per cent.
28 Feb 2002 : Column 1555W
Enforcement of community penalty breach warrants 75 per cent. of adult bail and no-bail warrants executed or withdrawn within 28 days of issue, and 75 per cent. of youth bail and no-bail warrants executed or withdrawn within 14 days of issue.
Magristrates Courts Committees will be given nearly ÿ10 million extra from April 2002, ring-fenced for enforcement, to enable them to improve performance. We will expect the amount of fine money recovered to increase as a result of the extra funding and will monitor the position carefully to ensure that performance improves.
We are already taking forward a programme of work to improve enforcement arising from the Department's Post Implementation Review of the Transfer of Warrant Execution project. The Post Implementation Review report will be published on the Department's website on 5 March. We shall be holding a series of conferences for enforcement practitioners in April. These will be followed by the establishment of a Criminal Enforcement Policy Advisory Group, which will be tasked with exploring and evaluating good practice initiatives, revising and updating guidance and taking forward other issues arising from the conferences to improve enforcement.
Copies of the Post Implementation Review report will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses on 5 March.

28 Feb 2002 : Column 1556W
homes are included in his Department's figures for total UK health expenditure as a percentage of gross domestic product in comparison to EU country figures. .
I have been asked to reply.
The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.
Letter from John Kidgell to Mr. Tim Loughton, dated 28 February 2002:
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent parliamentary question asking if (a) over the counter health remedies bought by private individuals, (b) money spent on health by charities and (c) money spent on non-NHS nursing homes are included in figures for total UK health expenditure as a percentage of gross domestic product in comparison to EU country figures. I am replying in his absence. (39209).
Comparative figures for total health expenditure in EU countries are published by the OECD in XOECD Health Data 2001", UK figures for this dataset were provided in February 2001 by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and do not incorporate improvements made in compilation methods since then. Deviations from the international definitions are fully documented within the dataset.
On 12 February 2002, ONS published estimates of total UK health expenditure for 19972000. The methods for estimating some of the components of the total new and relatively untested, so the improved estimates are being released as experimental. ONS has provided the experimental estimates to OECD for inclusion in XOECD Health Data 2002", the release of which is planned for June 2002. These experimental estimates do include expenditure on over-the-counter remedies bought by private individuals, money spent on health by non-profit institutions serving households (mainly charities) and money spent on nursing care in non-NHS nursing homes.
The improvements in methods used bring the total UK health expenditure estimates more into line with the international definition, promulgated by the OCED and supported by the World Health Organisation, the World Bank and the European Commission. Details of the methods have been published in Economic Trends No 579 (February 2002) and on the National Statistics website.
