Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many and what percentage of (a) speeding cases and (b) reported violent crimes led to (i) prosecution and (ii) conviction in each of the last two years for which figures are available. 
Hazel Blears: The information is not available in the form requested. Because recorded crime and speeding data refers to offences and court proceedings refers to defendants, the data are not directly comparable. In addition, recorded crime data is on a financial year basis and speeding offences and court proceedings data is on a calendar year basis.

Fiona Mactaggart: We are currently consulting on the issue of removing from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme cases where someone is injured while at work. We are considering if employers, whether in the public or private sector, are best placed to protect their employees, minimise the risk to them and bear the risk of compensating them for their injuries if they fail to do so.
Mr. David Hamilton: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many employees of rail companies in England and Wales have claimed criminal injuries compensation in relation to incidents in the course of their employment in 2005. 
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) record applications arising from injuries connected with the railway by type of incident rather than by occupation. The available
16 Jan 2006 : Column 1109W
information is that in the period 1 January 2005 to 30 November 2005 CICA received 172 applications from England and Wales where the incident type was listed as suicide or trespass on the railway or the London underground. Without going through each file individually it is not possible for CICA to say definitively whether all such claimants were in fact employees of rail companies and whether the injuries were sustained in the course of their employment.

Mr. Weir: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the expenditure on (a) buildings and (b) insurance of buildings and staff was of (i) his Department and (ii) each (A) non-departmental public body, (B) executive agency and (C) other public body for which his Department is responsible in each English region in each of the last three financial years; and what the planned expenditure is for 200506 in each case. 
Mr. Charles Clarke: This information is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. However I can confirm that on the Department's central London headquarters' estate the amount spent on bottled water dispensers for financial year 200405 was £46,665.34. Bottled water dispensers are provided in only a few selected areas in 2 Marsham Street and so this cost will reduce substantially for subsequent years.
Mr. Holloway: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many members of extreme Islamic groups have been deported to (a) Jordan and (b) Libya since the Government signed memoranda of understanding with those countries. 
To date, no-one has been removed to either country in reliance on assurances obtained under those documents. There are several cases where we intend to deport on the strength of assurances, but removal cannot take place while an appeal against the decision to make the deportation order is pending.
Mr. Dismore: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with which countries his Department is in negotiation concerning Memoranda of Understanding on deportation; and if he will make a statement. 
My right hon. Friend announced at the start of last year that we were seeking to negotiate Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with certain key middle-eastern and North African countries.

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what medical checks are carried out before the removal of deportees from the UK; and what steps are taken to ensure their wellbeing (a) during and (b) following their journey home. 
Mr. McNulty: If a person subject to removal is not detained prior to removal, it is the responsible of that individual to notify the Immigration Service (IS) of any medical conditions which might be a reason to delay or discontinue their removal from the UK.
Immigration staff will then (with the person's consent) get from the individual's doctor or hospital details of the specific medical condition, the treatment being prescribed, and the fitness of the person to travel. Immigration staff will also make checks to establish the availability of treatment in the person's country of origin and an assessment of any diminution of life expectancy if removal takes place.
If the person being removed is in detention they will receive a medical examination within 24 hours of their arrival at a removal centre. During detention individuals have access to the centre's healthcare team which includes a medical practitioner as well as nursing professionals. When there are concerns about an individual's health, the healthcare team will indicate to the Immigration Service whether or not an individual is fit to travel.
