Mr. McGrady: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many educational psychologists were employed in the (a) Southern and (b) South Eastern Education and Library Boards in (i) 2004 (ii)2000 and (iii) 1995. 
Mr. McGrady: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the average waiting time for an assessment to be undertaken by an educational psychologists in the (a) Southern and (b) South Eastern Education and Library Board of a child in the primary sector was in 200405. 
Mr. McGrady: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what assessment he has made of the recent assessment published by the Electricity Regulator in Northern Ireland of the price of electricity in Northern Ireland compared to the rest of the UK. 
Angela E. Smith: I concur with the conclusion that the excess generation costs inherited from privatisation are the main reason for the higher electricity prices paid by consumers in Northern Ireland compared to their counterparts in the remainder of the United Kingdom.
I also accept that the excess generation costs are likely to be of the order stated. However, the average cost per household is probably overstated given the proportion of the excess costs borne by other non-household consumers.
