SCOTLAND

Arrestment of Earnings

Mr. Canavan : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland in what circumstances the Lord Advocate acts for and on behalf of employers to assist the arrestment of earnings of people who have refused to pay fines for not registering for the poll tax.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton : In terms of the Crown Suits (Scotland) Act 1857 legal proceedings against any public department may be directed against the Lord Advocate. Accordingly, an arrestment seeking to arrest sums owing to an employee of a public department may be served on the Lord Advocate for and on behalf of such a department. Mr. Canavan : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what approaches the Lord Advocate has had from sheriff officers to assist the arrestment of earnings of people who have refused to pay fines for not registering for the poll tax ; and what action he intends taking.


Column 824

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton : Any arrestment served on the Lord Advocate in respect of any sums owing by a public department to an employee is a matter between the department, its employee and the person who has instructed the arrestment. Any arrestment so served would be considered to determine its validity. If valid, effect would be given to the arrestment by the public department concerned.

Community Service Orders

Mr. McTaggart : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many community service orders were issued by Scottish courts in each of the last five years.

Mr. Michael Forsyth : The number of community service disposals made by courts in Scotland in the most recent five year period for which information is available is as follows :


       |Number       

---------------------

1983   |2,077        

1984   |2,553        

1985   |2,889        

1986   |3,453        

1987   |3,478        

These figures cover both community service orders (section 1 of the Community Service by Offenders (Scotland) Act 1978) and community service as a condition of a probation order (section 7). The figure quoted for 1987 is provisional and subject to revision.

Kidney Dialysis

Mr. Gordon Brown : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many patients in Scotland not in receipt of dialysis are estimated to be in need of kidney dialysis ; and what is the average waiting time for receiving dialysis.

Mr. Michael Forsyth : All patients referred for treatment for end stage renal failure who, following clinical assessment, are considered likely to benefit from renal dialysis receive appropriate treatment when it is required.

Scottish Film Council

Mr. Allan Stewart : To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to publish the policy review of the Scottish Film Council ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Forsyth : Copies of this review, along with the implementation plan authorised by the Secretary of State, are being placed in the Library. We have accepted the major recommendation of the review that the Scottish Film Council should be established as a fully independent non-departmental public body. The separate status of the Scottish Film Council will enable it better to secure private sector support and sponsorship for film in Scotland to supplement the substantial resources already made available by the Government. We are consulting those directly interested about the arrangements for achieving this with full effect from April 1990. I am confident that the new arrangements will provide a secure foundation for the maintenance and development of the distinctive Scottish contribution to film.

policemen/policewomen, (iii) higher education lecturers, (iii) higher education researchers, (v) doctors, (vi) nurses and (vii) firemen and firewomen there were for each year since 1976.


Column 826

Mr. Michael Forsyth [holding answer 20 February 1989] : The available information is given in the table. Comparable information for lecturers and researchers in higher education, or for part-time recruits is not available centrally.

Retail Prices Index

Miss Emma Nicholson : To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether he has yet received a report from the retail prices index advisory committee on the effect of the abolition of domestic rates on the construction of the index.


Column 830

Mr. Fowler : I have today received a report from the committee recommending that the community charge should be included in the retail prices index when domestic rates are abolished. I will shortly be publishing the report and announcing the Government's decision on the recommendations.

Disabled People (Training)

Mr. Bellingham : To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement about the progress of disabled people in employment training.

Mr. Fowler [holding answer 14 February 1989] : Twelve per cent. of new entrants to employment training are people with a long-term health problem or disability.

This is a significantly higher proportion than for any previous adult training programme, including the community programme. It shows that people with disabilities are just as able as others to benefit from training when it is geared flexibly to their individual needs. Employers can now look very seriously at recruiting and training people with disabilities through ET. As the growth in the work force slows down, opportunities for people with disabilities to get and keep jobs will increase and they will be better able to realise their full potential. Employment training is helping people with disabilities to make the most of these opportunities.

Mr. Peter Lloyd : A number of hon. Members, organisations and members of the public have made representations echoing those already made by the 346 organisations mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member for Halifax (Mrs Mahon) on 23 January at columns 417-18.
