§ Mr. Paul Marsden
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects the National Service Framework for children to be published. 
§ Jacqui Smith
It is intended that the children's national service framework (NSF) will be publishing the hospital standards, as announced in response to the 347W Bristol Royal Infirmary Inquiry. We will also be publishing a second document signposting the likely areas for inclusion in the final NSF to assist with local National Health Service planning.
