HC Deb 14 March 2001 vol 364 c625W
Mr. Corbyn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department has spent on the Camden and Islington Health Action Zone since its inception; and what spending is planned for 2001–02. [153697]

Mr. Denham

Since its inception in April 1999 Camden and Islington Health Action Zone (HAZ) has received £3.36 million in direct funding from the Department. In 2001–02 the HAZ will receive at least a further £1.41 million, with decisions on smoking cessation and drugs prevention moneys yet to be made.

In addition, Camden and Islington Health Authority has received £2.7 million targeted funding for HAs in HAZ areas. In 2001–02 this funding is subsumed within the Health Inequalities Adjustment, of which Camden and Islington HA's share is £3.1 million.
