§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will place in the Library the Metropolitan Police Service report into the pilot project which involved the use of private medical facilities to treat Metropolitan police officers. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
The Commissioner tells me that the Metropolitan police are undertaking a "Spend-to-Save" pilot scheme for the early diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions that involves the use of private medical facilities. The scheme commenced in May 1999 and will run to the end of April 2000, after which a report will be published. I will arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library.
