To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much additional funding has been given to (a) Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust and (b) all other hospital trusts for a deep clean.

Information on the costs of individual trust plans for deep cleaning is not held by the Department. All trusts were required to submit and agree their deep clean plans, including costs, with primary care trusts and providers in their area by 14 December 2007 and this process has been monitored and assessed by the strategic health authorities.

I refer the hon. Member to the written ministerial statement issued on 21 November 2007, Hansard, columns 134-35WS, in which the Department made available information on the funding to support the deep clean of the national health service at regional level.
