To ask the Secretary of State for Health, pursuant to the Answer of 21 January 2015 to Question 221099, and with reference to his speech to the King's Fund on 13 November 2014 in which he cited the claim by the London Health Commission that the total value of surplus NHS estate in the capital is worth £1.5 billion, what information he holds on the evidential basis of that claim; what assessment he has made of whether that claim is compatible with the data given in the Answer; and if he will make a statement.

The London Health Commission figure relates to property assets owned by National Health Service organisations in London. The data given in Question 221099 represented only land and buildings owned nationally by the Department. The two data sets can therefore not be compared.
