for the behaviour of supporters and followers, and to regard them as participants for the purposes of securing compliance with a determination of the Parades Commission. 
(a) PSNI provide a copy of the Parades Commission's code of conduct to parade organisers when they present the Parade Application Form 11/1 at a police station. The code of conduct sets out clearly that the onus is on organisers to ensure the good behaviour of supporters and followers. Police have a general order which contains guidelines on the planning process in the run up to a parade. In December 2002, an amendment was made to the general order which states that
Mr. Beggs: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the average cost of pre-school childcare in Northern Ireland was in the last period for which figures are available; and what assistance is available to working families who require nursery support. 
Angela Smith: Health and Social Services Trusts provide annual data on unit costs of services through their Trust financial returns and this includes information on day nurseries, playgroups, out of school hours clubs and holiday schemes for children. The mean average cost of day attendances at day-care services provided for under-18s was £92 per day in the 200304 financial year. It is not, however, possible to break down the unit cost information held by the Department into particular client groups and, for that reason, the average cost of pre-school childcare provision could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
Mr. Beggs: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether child care providers in Northern Ireland are required to be registered; and what estimate he has made of the number of child care providers.

Mr. Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the average waiting time for surgery was in 2004 for prisoners in Her Majesty's prisons in Northern Ireland who (a) had been sentenced and (b) were being held on remand. 
Mr. Dodds: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much has been paid by his Department in compensation claims following public disorder at Ardoyne on 12 July in each year since 2001. 
You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about how much had been paid in compensation claims following public disorder at Ardoyne on 12 July in each year since 2001 (216412). I have been asked to reply as the issue falls within my responsibility as Chief Executive of the Compensation Agency.
|Claims under the Criminal Damage (Compensation) (Northern Ireland) Order 1977||Claims under the Criminal Injuries (Compensation) (Northern Ireland) Order 1988|
The 1988 Order was replaced, on 1 May 2002, by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2002. The location of incidents recorded under this scheme is not wholly reliable as, for record keeping purposes, the Agency holds claims by the applicant's home address. The applicant is asked for a general description of the incident location which is later confirmed by the police in their report on the incident. On this basis it is not possible to determine, without disproportionate costs, claims which may arise out of incidents in Ardoyne on 12 July during 20022004.
