Jesse Norman – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Jesse Norman on 2015-02-12.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate he has made of savings related to PFI contracts in the NHS since 2010.

Mr Jeremy Hunt

Since May 2010, £179 million of signed savings on National Health Service private finance initiative (PFI) contracts has been reported by the Department of Health to HM Treasury.

Our reforms have made it illegal for any government to drive the private sector into the NHS as Labour did, as Labour’s PFI deals are costing the NHS more than £1 billion a year.
