Neighbourhood and street wardens are dealt with by my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister, who informs me that there are 321 wardens in Greater London funded by his Department. There are other wardens in addition to this operating in Greater London and elsewhere but they are not funded centrally and there is no central record of their numbers.
Vera Baird: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many inquests in the jurisdiction of the Cleveland Coroner were heard in (a) August, (b) September, (c) October, (d) November and (e) December 2004 by (i) the coroner, (ii) the deputy coroner and (iii) the assistant deputy coroner. 
Vera Baird: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the salaries of the (a) coroner, (b) deputy coroner and (c) assistant deputy coroner of Cleveland were at 1 December 2004. 
[holding answer 10 January 2004]: This is a matter for the relevant local authorities. There are two coroners within the area of the former county of Cleveland. The two authorities responsible are Middlesbrough borough council (for the Teesside

coroner) and Hartlepool borough council (for the Hartlepool coroner). They lead for the other authorities in the former county.
Vera Baird: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many days in (a) 2003 and (b) 2004 (i) the Coroner, (ii) the Deputy Coroner and (iii) the Assistant Deputy Coroner for Cleveland sat on inquests. 
Paul Goggins [holding answer 10 January 2005]: This information is not available centrally. There are two coroners within the former county of Cleveland. Home Office statistics on case numbers in Teesside show that 274 inquests were held in 2002 and 273 in 2003; and that 82 inquests were held in 2002 and 59 in 2003. Data (in Hartlepool) for 2004 are not yet available.
Vera Baird: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many days on average in (a) 2003 and (b) 2004 (i) coroners, (ii) deputy coroners and (iii) assistant deputy coroners in the north-east region sat on inquests. 
Mr. Salmond: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan will receive a reply to his letter of 25 November 2004 to the Minister of State for Citizenship, Immigration and Nationality regarding the Sectors Based Scheme, Arrangements for Foreign Employees. 
There is nothing in the Sectors Based Scheme itself that requires a person to sign on with the police. However, where someone given leave under that scheme is a "relevant foreign national" for the purposes of part 10 of the Immigration Rules, he would normally be required to register with the police.
The arrangements relating to the administration of the police registration scheme at a local level are a matter for the individual police force concerned, and the matter raised in the letter is therefore one for Grampian police to consider.
John Cryer: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will answer letters from the hon. Member for Hornchurch dated 29 January, 1 October and 12 November 2004, concerning the case of Brian Kent, reference M19306/4; and if he will make a statement on whether computer problems led to the delay. 
I can confirm that the letters referred to by my hon. Friend were received by the Home Office. Although a reply to his letter of 29 January 2004 was drafted, it is not clear why this was not sent and why his two further letters were not acted upon more quickly. Mr. Kent has now commenced action to take his case to the European Court of Human Rights and we are

considering our response. It is expected that the Home Office will be in a position to send a full reply to my hon. Friend's letter of 12 November within four weeks.
