§ Mr. Viggers
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what the approved affordability is of the private finance initiative at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham; 
(2) what the expected annual cost is of the private finance initiative at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham. 
§ Ms Blears
I am advised that the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Strategic Health Authority and stakeholder primary care trusts reviewed the affordability in 2002.
The estimated capital cost of the scheme was confirmed as £173 million. The revenue consequences of the development of the Queen Alexandra Hospital site amounted to £44 million per annum.
Approval to the original proposed scheme was re-confirmed.
