|Function||Total administrative costs 200405 (£)|

David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the total cost was of compensation payments paid out by the Compensation Agency as a result of terrorist attacks since the beginning of the Troubles, broken down by category. 
The Compensation Agency cannot provide information about the cost of compensation stemming specifically from terrorist attacks as there is often no way of ascertaining the motives of a victim's assailants unless a prosecution follows. In many cases where the assailant(s) are unknown, or where no prosecution has

taken place, the Agency could only speculate about the perpetrator's motives and consequently figures provided on that basis would be very unreliable.
Adam Afriyie: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he has received written representations from members of the armed forces in support of the Northern Ireland (Offences) Bill. 
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 13 December 2005, Official Report, column 186667W, on prosecutions, how many people were prosecuted for shoplifting in each constituency. 
Mr. Hanson: Prosecution data is not readily available broken down by Northern Ireland constituency. The statistics provided in the table are for the years 2000 to 2003 and are based on the PSNI district command unit in which an offender's address falls. Due to the incomparability of 1999 data, (available only by the police division to which an offence was reported) 1999 figures are not included.
Data are collated on the principal offence rule, thus only the most serious offence for which an offender is charged is included. Statistics beyond 2003 will become available in early 2006.

Mr. Charles Clarke: We will be providing police authorities with good practice guidance early next year to assist them in developing their strategies for working with partners to obtain matched funding for police community support officer posts.
The Secretary of State for the Home Department has no responsibility for the March 2005 accounts of the Experience Corps. Section 47 of the Charities Act 1993 requires that all registered charities publish annual accounts.
