§ Helen Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list(a) the amount and (b) the purpose of each specific grant allocation made to Warrington Hospital since 1997. 
§ Mr. Denham
[holding answer 8 February 2001]: The information requested is in the tables.
surgery for Parkinson's disease patients is being considered by the Medical Research Council (MRC). The funding decision on this trial is due to be made by the MRC in March, following which the council would be happy to provide further details.
I regret that in an Adjournment debate on Parkinson's disease on 2 February 2001, Official Report, column 641, funding of £940,000 for a study into the effectiveness of new and old drugs for Parkinson's disease was incorrectly attributed to the MRC. This specific project is in fact funded by the National Health Service Technology Assessment Programme.
