§ 28. Mr. St. Aubyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the allocations from the modernisation fund to each health authority. 
§ Mr. Denham
Almost £2.3 billion has been allocated to health authorities from the Modernisation Fund. These funds have laid the foundation for the Government's modernisation agenda for the National Health Service. The Modernisation Fund will cease to exist in 2001–02. It has been superseded by the funding secured as part of SR2000 and the publication of the NHS Plan.
