Baroness Jay: My right honourable friend the Prime Minister has asked my right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to chair a new Cabinet Sub-Committee on Productivity and Competitiveness. The composition and terms of reference for this committee are: Ministerial Sub-Committee on Productivity and Competitiveness EA(PC)
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Hayman): We welcome the campaign launched by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It complements the Department of Health's Impact Strategy to reduce discrimination against people with mental health problems. We are working in collaboration with the Royal College, users of mental health services and the voluntary sector in taking forward the aims of the Impact Strategy. Officials have agreed to join the Royal College's working party with a view to lending support to their aim to reduce stigmatising attitudes amongst doctors.
Baroness Hayman: Guidance on health improvement programmes has been issued jointly to the National Health Service, including primary care groups, and to local authorities. A copy is available in the Library. This guidance includes clear reference to the range of local stakeholders, including the voluntary sector, who should be involved in this process.
Baroness Hayman: Non-executive directors of National Health Service trusts, health authorities and health boards receive remuneration of £5,000 a year. Annual remuneration for chairs of both NHS trusts and health authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and for NHS trusts in Scotland are set at three levels: band 1 at £19,285; band 2 at £17,145; and band 3 at £15,125. There are seven levels of remuneration for chairs of Health Boards in Scotland, ranging from £7,200-£25,140 a year. Payments are based on the turnover of the body involved for NHS trust chairs, and on the annual level of cash allocation for health authority and health board chairs.
The Minister of State, Home Office (Lord Williams of Mostyn): The preliminary fact-finding work of our liquor licensing review suggests that there is no one European model. Our Continental neighbours generally have more relaxed licensing hours but stricter enforcement regimes. Our review will consider whether there are ideas we might usefully draw on.
Lord Williams of Mostyn: The Contractor incurred performance points in five out of six areas of performance measurement: safety and security; care and control; living conditions; regime; and preparation for release. In addition, performance points were incurred for non-reporting of performance events.
Lord Williams of Mostyn: The pricing basis of the secure training centre contract depends on the availability of places and the quality of service provided. There is no distinction within the contract between the cost of accommodating male or female trainees. On the question of costs, I refer to my reply on 27 April (col. 9), when I explained to noble Lords that, if we exclude capital costs, the average cost of a place at Medway would be £2,400 per week.
Lord McIntosh of Haringey: There is no evidence on the files that any formal communication was sent to Lord Grantchester; nor that copies of the report were sent to SIB (now FSA) or IMRO. It is however clear that TWH Management Ltd disclosed the report to IMRO.
