To ask Her Majesty's Government how much was paid to the Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey and the Republic of Ireland by the United Kingdom under reciprocal health agreements in each of the last three years; and how much was paid by them to the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom Government pay an allocation to the Isle of Man, and paid an allocation to the Channel Islands as part of the reciprocal healthcare agreements held with both Crown Dependencies. The allocations are shown in the following table. The UK did not receive any financial income in return.
|Financial allocation provided to Jersey|
|Financial allocation provided to Guernsey|
|Financial allocation provided to the Isle of Man|
In contrast to the reciprocal healthcare agreements with Crown Dependencies, the agreement with Ireland is based on European Social Security legislation. Payments made in any one year do not necessarily relate to costs incurred within that year.
Within that context, the net payments the UK made to Ireland in each of the last three years are shown in the following table:
