Alistair Burt
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the average time was for the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman to allocate an assessor to a health case in (a) February 2015, (b) August 2014, (c) February 2014 and (d) 2010.

George Freeman

The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman is independent of Government, accountable directly to Parliament. The Department does not, therefore, hold this information. However, we understand that the Ombudsman will be writing directly to the hon. Member with further detail on the question raised.
