Please detail these figures as follows:-
• An overall figure per financial year

In the format £x per placement in the year April 08 to March 09, for example.”
This information is not held by the Welsh Assembly Government but by Powys Teaching Local Health Board.

When dealing with any further concerns, we will continue to follow the principles of the Assembly’s Code of Practice on Complaints.
