§ 21. Ms Christine Russell
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what events his Department has sponsored to date to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the NHS. 
§ Mr. Milburn
The main focus of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Health Service is at a local level, and central sponsorship has been restricted to legitimate national activities which support the NHS's aims. To date the Department has sponsored an education resource pack, health promotion material, and a resource pack for use by local NHS organisations.
