Mr. Charles Clarke:
Lists of all statutory instruments (SIs) from 1 January 1998 to 30 June 2005, prepared by the Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) have today been placed in the Library. These lists, prepared in alphabetical order by Department, detail for each year from 1998 the number and title of each statutory instrument sponsored by the Department. There are

separate lists for general and local SIs. SIs which were Orders in Council are listed as Privy Council Office (PCO) instruments.
Hazel Blears: On 14 September 2004, the then Home Secretary (Mr. Blunkett) announced that he had agreed that Chief Officers of all forces in England and Wales could make Taser available to authorised firearms officers as a less lethal weapon for use in situations where a firearms authority has been granted in accordance with criteria laid down in the Association of Chief Police Officers Manual of Guidance on the Police Use of Firearms. I understand that 28 forces in England and Wales are now deploying Taser.
Mr. Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been (a) arrested, (b) charged and (c) convicted under the Terrorism Act 2000, broken down by (i) year, (ii) gender, (iii) ethnicity and (iv) religion. 
Mr. Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many instances of stop and search there have been under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000, broken down by (a) city, (b) year, (c) gender, (d) ethnicity and (e) religion. 
The Home Office Statistical Bulletin: 'Arrests for Notifiable Offences and the Operation of Certain Police Powers under PACE; England and Wales,' details stop-searches under the Terrorism Act 2000, by police force over financial years. The bulletin also shows subsequent arrests.
The document 'Publications under Section 95 of theCriminal Justice Act; Statistics on Race and the Criminal Justice System' details stop-searches under the Terrorism Act 2000 by ethnicity. Figures are collated by police force over financial years and they also show subsequent arrests under the Terrorism Act and other legislation.
The statistics available show the number of stop-searches and the number of resulting arrests under both the Terrorism Act and other legislation by financial year and ethnicity. However, no details of resulting charges or prosecutions directly from Section 44 stop-searches, because the figures are not collated in this way. Gender and religion statistics for those stop-searched under the Terrorism Act 2000 are not recorded.

Dr. Cable: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cases he has received in the last 12 months involving deportation to Zimbabwe; in how many cases he has exercised his discretion to stop deportation; and how many individuals have been removed to Zimbabwe. 
Mr. McNulty: My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary outlined our policy on the return of failed asylum seekers to Zimbabwe in a statement to the House on 27 June. He updated the House by written statements on 6 and 18 July.
On 4 August, in a case relating to the treatment of failed asylum seekers upon their return to Zimbabwe, the High Court granted permission for a substantive Judicial Review but deferred the substantive hearing to allow the specialist Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) to hear a test case.
Quarterly statistics relating to asylum issues are published by the Immigration and Nationality Directorate on the Home Office website. The latest report was published in August. From those figures, I am able to report that since we resumed the removal of failed Zimbabwean asylum claimants to Zimbabwe in November 2004 and June 2005, 260 Zimbabweans were removed from the United Kingdom. Of those, 70 elected to leave voluntarily.
Yvette Cooper: The numbers of starts and completions of affordable dwellings for the last five years on behalf of London boroughs are tabled. The numbers include homes for rent and for low cost home ownership, provided through new build dwellings, acquisitions and refurbishments, via the Housing Corporation Approved Development Programme including the Key Worker Living in 200405. They exclude (Transitional) Local Authority Social Housing Grant, the Starter Homes Initiative, and s106 agreements where there was no Housing Corporation Funding.
