§ Mr. Edward Davey
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the estimated(a) date,(b) cost to his Department and(c) cost to other government bodies is of the mainstreaming of health action zones; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Blears
Since April 2002, health action zones (HAZs) have been aligning locally with primary care trusts (PCTs) and local strategic partnerships (LSPs), and supporting PCT and LSP development. This process is reflected in the recommendations made by the regional co-ordination unit in their action plan for area based initiatives.
Information is not held centrally about the costs associated with the alignment process.
