§ 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. 
§ 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.
