Mr. Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the change has been in (a) salary, (b) expenses and (c) pension contributions of the top five earning employees of Invest Northern Ireland in the past three years. 
Mr. Hanson: The top earning five employees in Invest Northern Ireland are the chief executive and the four managing directors. The changes in their salaries, pension contributions and expenses over the last three years are set out as follows.
Managing directors (MD's) are paid on the NICS Grade 3 (Deputy Secretary) Scale. MD's are appointed on the minimum of the salary scale and annual increases and bonus payments mirror exactly the settlement for the NI Senior Civil Service. They are members of the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (NI) and employer's percentage contributions are fixed by the Department of Finance and Personnel.
Mr. Hanson: Invest NI's marketing and sales resources are focused on those sectors and geographical markets most likely to generate projects to match the Northern Ireland business proposition and contribute to the development of an innovation-based economy.
The assessment that I have made of these steps is actual performance against agreed targets. To date Invest Northern Ireland has met all these targets. In fact, last year was Invest NI's most successful year for securing new Foreign Direct Investment.
Mr. Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on how many vehicles in pay and display car parks under the control of the Department for Regional Development in Northern Ireland an additional charge was made as a result of (a) non-payment and (b) under-payment of the appropriate parking charge in 2004. 
You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question regarding how many vehicles in pay and display car parks under the control of the Department for Regional Development in Northern Ireland an additional charge was made as a result of either (a) non-payment and (b) under-payment of the appropriate parking charge in 2004.
I should explain that in Roads Service's pay and display car parks, a fee is levied based on the length of time that the driver intends to park. If a vehicle fails to display evidence that a fee has been paid, an imposed Alternative Charge (£25) ticket is issued. However, if a fee has been paid, but is insufficient for the length of stay, an imposed Excess Charge (£20) ticket is issued.

David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many (a) controlled and (b) maintained primary schools in Northern Ireland are scheduled to close in each of the next three years. 
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on what criteria decisions are taken to (a) suspend and (b) expel a pupil in a (i) controlled and (ii) maintained school in Northern Ireland. 
All schools are required by law to have a discipline policy, which sets out sanctions, including suspension or expulsion, which the school will impose for breaches of school discipline. It is for individual schools to draw up their own discipline policy, including the criteria they will use in decisions to suspend or expel a pupil from school.
