Mr. Bryan Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what remuneration, allowances and other expenses are received by members of the boards of(a) Hillingdon hospital trust and (b) Portsmouth health care trust.

Mr. Malone

Chairmen of national health service trusts receive annual remuneration in the range of £15,125 to £19,285. The annual remuneration of non-executive directors of NHS trusts is £5,000. They are also entitled to claim allowances, at rates set centrally, for travel and subsistence necessarily incurred on trust business. Details of such payments are not available centrally.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make an announcement about the fifth wave of national health service trusts.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

I have today approved 13 applications from hospitals and other units wishing to become national health service trusts. I have also given approval to two trust-to-trust mergers. Details have been placed in the Library.
