Mark Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with (a) the Prime Minister and (b) the Foreign Secretary on securing EU funding for (i) Wales and (ii) West Wales and the Valleys; what assessment he has made of the likelihood of securing budgetary agreement on EU funding for Wales before Christmas; and if he will make a statement. 
I am acutely aware of the importance of timing if Wales is to continue to benefit from the higher level of European aid. Negotiations on the EU Structural and Cohesion Fund are closely linked to the wider discussions on the financial perspective for the EU for the same period. The UK presidency is taking forward the discussions on future financing and is committed to preparing the future financing dossier for the December council.
Angus Robertson: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the total spending by his Department on (a) staff, (b) accommodation and (c) procurement in (i) Moray constituency and (ii) the Highland Region was for the most recent year for which figures are available.

Mr. Douglas Alexander: Our consular staff cannot guarantee the safety and/or personal security of British nationals abroad. If Mrs. Da-Bora has concerns for her personal safety, she should make them known to the Spanish police who are the responsible authority for the protection of individuals in Spain. Our staff are ready to provide appropriate consular assistance to Mrs. Da-Bora and to accompany her if she wishes to call on the Spanish police.
