Wells report discussed in the commons

I have just noticed that a question about the "Wells Report" was recorded in Hansard on the 21st March. I am unclear whether this relates to the report on the NHSu, publication of which I have been trying to obtain under the Freedom on Information Act.

Wells Report

Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what the cost of the Wells Report was; and for what reason he does not currently intend to publish the report; [219067]

(2) what the cost was to public funds of the Wells Report. [220094]

Miss Melanie Johnson: No specific budget was allocated to the Wells report work. Its compilation involved the input of many individuals in a number of different organisations. The cost to public funds of the report could therefore be estimated only at disproportionate cost. The report will not be published, as to do so would prejudice similar future examinations of the economy, efficiency and effectiveness with which other public authorities discharge their functions.
