I refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 12 July 2005, Hansard, columns 988-89W. The table which has been placed in the Library gives the annual payments by each trust to its private sector partner on private finance initiative schemes which have reached financial close. This table has now been updated to reflect the Barts and London Hospital and the Hull and East Yorkshire private finance initiative schemes reaching financial close since then.
