HC Deb 10 May 2004 vol 421 c158W
Mr. Lansley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the public dividend capital was at 31 March of those NHS trusts becoming NHS foundation trusts on 1 April; whether in each case this is the initial public dividend capital of those foundation trusts; and what requests he has received for the issuing of additional public dividend capital to those foundation trusts under section 11 of the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003. [165729]

Mr. Hutton

[holding answer 19 April 2004]: The amount of public dividend capital (PDC) outstanding on 31 March 2004 at each of the national health service trusts that became NHS foundation trusts on 1 April 2004 is shown in the table. The information is taken from the Department's records. The amount of PDC shown in the annual accounts of these trusts is subject to audit and may differ for technical accounting reasons. The initial PDC of a NHS foundation trust is the same as the closing PDC of the predecessor NHS trust.

To date, no requests have been received from NHS foundation trusts for additional public dividend capital under section 11 of the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003.
