To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) how many people he estimates are living in fuel poverty within each Westminster parliamentary constituency in the Province; 
8 Nov 2005 : Column 418W
Mr. Hanson: Figures on fuel poverty are classified in terms of households rather than individual people and are collected on a district council, rather than a parliamentary constituency basis. The estimated number of people in fuel poverty based on the 2001 House Condition Survey is as follows:
|District council area||Estimated number of households in fuel poverty|
|Dungannon and South Tyrone||3,670|
|Newry and Mourne||6,650|
|Northern Ireland total||203,260|
|Percentage of males who left school with no GCSE passes||Percentage of females who left school with no GCSE passes|

|English and Mathematics||90||88||89||90|
|English and Mathematics||82||80||82||83|
|English and Mathematics||90||91||90||89|
|English and Mathematics||82||83||83||83|

Sammy Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what estimates have been made of the tonnage of illegally dumped waste originating from the Irish Republic and deposited in Northern Ireland in each of the last five years. 
Angela E. Smith: The Department of the Environment's Environment and Heritage Service took over responsibility for the regulation of illegal waste activity, including incidents of illegal dumping of material originating in the Republic of Ireland, in October 2002. Between that date and the end of 2004, some 250,000 tonnes of biodegradable ROI waste was detected in Northern Ireland. It is not possible to determine the year in which the waste was disposed of, so the figure cannot be broken down into annual tonnages. An updated amount to reflect the period up to end 2005 is being calculated and will be available early in 2006.
Mrs. Iris Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the total cost has been of upgrading roads and footpaths at (a) Lagan College and (b) the Millennium Primary School in the Strangford constituency. 
You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question regarding what the total cost has been of upgrading roads and footpaths at (a) Lagan College and (b) the Millennium Primary School in the Strangford constituency.
Following the receipt of a number of requests from various interested parties, Roads Service carried out a minor works improvement scheme at the junction of Manse Road and Glencregagh Road at a cost of £660,000.
The scheme, which was completed in 2004, included the provision of a new widened and realigned carriageway; right turn pockets at Lagan College and Glencregagh Road; improved sightlines at the Manse Road/Glencregagh Road junction; and the construction of approximately 1.3 km of new footway to provide continuous pedestrian access on Manse Road between Four Winds Roundabout and Lagan College.
Colleagues in the Department of Education (DE) have also confirmed that road improvement works were carried out at the site of the new Millennium Primary School in 2003 as a condition of the school's planning approval. These works, which were necessary to ensure satisfactory means of access in the interests of road safety and the convenience of road users, cost approximately £330,000 and were funded by DE.
Subsequent to the school opening, it became apparent that drivers were not observing the signs and road markings and that safety was being threatened by illegal overtaking manoeuvres in the vicinity of the school. To address this, Roads Service installed further traffic islands, signs, road markings and lighting at a cost of £29,000.
