John Bercow: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of the 1,206 colleges visited by his Department's student task force were judged to be (a) genuine colleges and (b) not genuine colleges. 
Andy Burnham: Between April 2004 and December 2004, 1,218 educational institutions were visited and 314 (25 per cent.) were found not to be genuine. All applications from students to study at institutions found not to be genuine were refused.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the Answer of 10 October 2005, Official Report, column 180W, on terrorist attacks in London, how long it took to reach each underground train affected by the incidents. 
Hazel Blears: After consultation with the Metropolitan Police Service, the British Transport Police, the London Fire Brigade Service and the London Ambulance Service I can inform the hon. Member that the information he has requested is not readily available.
Following normal practice, the London Ambulance Service did not record the times that their paramedics and technicians reached the trains, only the stations which were the locations given in the 999 calls. This also applies to the Metropolitan Police Service, the British Transport Police and the London Fire Brigade.
It is considered that to collate the information requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost as it would require information from each of the individual responders from the emergency services.
I can inform the hon. Member that the London Underground have provided information that in respect of the Aldgate and Edgware Road incidents, London Underground staff reached the trains within 35 minutes of the blasts occurring.
10 Nov 2005 : Column 659W
Joan Walley: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what action he will take in response to the publication of the Belfast Protocol by the British Toilet Association on 11 October; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Woolas: I met with the British Toilet Association on 11 October to discuss good practice in public toilet provision. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister will work with the BTA to produce further guidance, including examples of best practice. This will be undertaken as part of our How To Deliver Cleaner, Safer, Greener Communities" good practice programme.
David Howarth: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what information he collects on (a) the number of buildings, (b) the number of staff working from each building and (c) the management of the buildings in (i)his Department and (ii) its executive agencies. 
(i) The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has four headquarters buildings in London which are in the process of being rationalised. There is additional minor office space at Hempstead House, Kernel Hempstead, Ashdown House, Hastings and 1 High Street, Glossop.
(ii) In relation to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's Executive Agencies, the Fire Services College occupies buildings at Moreton in Marsh and the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre is located in Westminster. The Planning Inspectorate occupies Temple Quay House, Bristol.
(i) Figures are based on staff with an entry on the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister personnel database, but exclude staff on temporary leave of absence from the office, eg maternity leave, staff working in the Regional Coordination Unit and staff working in the Executive agencies which are recorded as follows. Figures for staff are likely to differ from those published elsewhere as they have been produced on a different basis. All figures are shown as actual number of staff.
|Ashdown House Victoria||329|
|Eland House, Victoria||1,368|
|Building 3 Garston||13|
|Fire Experimental Unit, Moreton-in-Marsh||8|
|Admiralty House, 26 Whitehall||153|
|Allington Towers, Victoria||143|
|Ashdown House, Hastings||40|
|Exchange Tower, London||13|
|Temple Quay House, Bristol||29|
(ii) Figures for staff in buildings occupied by the Executive agencies are only available as full-time equivalents and this will almost certainly be an underestimate of the number of individuals employed. Figures include agency staff and contractors and may differ from figures published elsewhere using different definitions.
|Fire Service College||296.2|
|Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre||53.3|
