HC Deb 16 June 2003 vol 407 c77W
Mrs. Calton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how invoices for operations carried out in private hospitals are raised. [117199]

Mr. Hutton

This information is not held centrally. The arrangements for invoicing are the commercial responsibility of individual private hospitals.

(a) Attacks on persons involved in democratic politics 1 January 2003 to date
16 April An explosive device consisting of 2 pipe bombs attached to a gas cylinder was placed outside the constituency offices of Nigel Dodds MP for Belfast, North. The attack was subsequently claimed by CIRA.
17 April The unknown occupant of a van, which drew up alongside Nigel Dodds MP on the Limestone Road, used abusive and threatening language.
12 May A parcel bomb was sent to the right hon. David Trimble MP at the Offices of the UUP Headquarters, Holy wood Road, Belfast. Two shotgun cartridges were to be ignited by matches but only the matches ignited. RIRA claimed responsibility for the attack.

(b) Attacks on the property of those involved in democratic politics 1 January 2003 to date
16 January An elaborate hoax device was placed outside the home of Mrs Brid Rodgers in Craigavon. Police believe this was an attempt by local youths to draw the police into the area to initiate some form of riot or other attack on the security forces.
18 February Bomb hoax at Sinn Fein Offices on Andersonstown Road, Belfast. The call was made by a person claiming to be from the Continuity IRA.
Bomb hoax at Sinn Fein Offices on Sevastopol Street, Belfast. The timing suggests that the two incidents were linked. Nothing was found in either incident.
25 March There was an attack on the home of Anne Bell, SDLP Councillor and member of Strabane District Policing Partnership. A car belonging to Councillor Bell's daughter was destroyed by arson attack; an accelerant is believed to have been used. It is believed dissident republicans were responsible.
