David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many (a) road traffic accidents and (b) fatal road traffic accidents there have been in Northern Ireland in each of the last 10 years where the major contributory factor has been (i) speed, (ii) excess alcohol and (iii) failure to maintain the vehicle. 
Penalty clauses are not included in Roads Service contracts as a means of recovering damages, as they are not enforceable in law. Where a loss is incurred through the failure of a contractor to fulfil their obligations under a contract, redress is sought through a liquidated damages clause. The amount included in a liquidated damages clause is a genuine pre-estimate, at the time of the issue of tender documents, of the loss that will be incurred in the event of a breach of contract.
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many (a) publicans and (b) off licence proprietors in Northern Ireland have been (i) prosecuted for and (ii) convicted of selling alcohol to underage children in each of the last five years.

A new subject coding system was introduced for the 200203 academic year in which single enrolments are split over one or more subject groups reflecting the programme of study. Comparisons between 200203, 200304 and previous years is therefore not recommended. For comparability over the 10 years, figures are based on a snapshot of enrolments at 1 December within the academic year.
