In the light of the fast-approaching demise of the NHS, why hasn't the Tory/Liberal Democrat Government admitted where it has spent, or plans to spend, the £500m remaining in Treasury coffers, which I understand was clawed back from last year's NHS budget for England?

Apparently, from the original £900 million it allowed £400 million to be "rolled over" into the budget for this year. However, there seems to be a mystery concerning the remainder and my MP, for one, has not answered my question about it.

Scots seem generally unperturbed by the Government's ideological wrecking of the NHS because health in Scotland is devolved; but the ramifications of decisions at Westminster are bound to be detrimental to our most precious service throughout the UK.
