Stephen Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people previously in custody have reoffended in (a) Wimbledon and (b) the London borough of Merton in each year since 1997. 
Fiona Mactaggart: The most recent reoffending data for adults were published in Re-offending of adults: results from the 2002 cohort" which is available through the Home Office's website (http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/index.htm).
The report shows the proportion of offenders who reoffended within two years and were subsequently convicted, and separately identifies offenders given custodial and community sentences. The conviction for the offence is counted even if it occurred beyond the two year follow-up period. Results are given for 2000 and 2002.
Reconviction data for 1997 through 2000 were published in Prison statistics England and Wales 2002" and data for 2001 were published in Offender Management Caseload Statistics 2003". Both of these publications are available on the Home Office website. These series count only those convictions that were secured within the two year follow-up period.
Reconviction rates should be used with caution as a number of different factors can influence them. Reconviction rates can be adjusted to take account of the changing characteristics of offenders and these adjusted rates are published on the Home Office's website. The most recent data show that there has been a reduction in reoffending for all offenders of 0.2 per cent. against the 2000 baseline. The Home Office public service agreement target is to reduce re-offending by 5 per cent. by 2006.

Police forces in England and Wales with responsibility for policing airports which do not hold designated status are entitled to apply for extraordinary funding to provide an appropriate policing presence in line with the current terrorist threat. Bedfordshire, in line with a number of other forces, has applied for such funding.
The level of funding awarded is determined by the Association of Chief Police Officers acting in full consultation with individual forces and the Home Office. For reasons of security we do not comment on the level of funding or which airports are in receipt of such funding.
Mrs. Dorries: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations his Department plans to make to the independent review of policing at airports; and if he will make a statement. 
Hazel Blears: The independent review of policing at airports is being led by Stephen Boys Smith, as announced by the Secretary of State for Transport on nine January. He has requested representations from a number of interested parties including the Home Office. These representations will be made in confidence to the review. The review's findings and recommendations are expected to be completed in late spring.
Mrs. Dorries: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what level of funding was made available to each civil airport within the UK for the provision of counter terrorism initiatives in each year since 1997; and if he will make a statement. 
Hazel Blears: Provision of general security at airports within the United Kingdom is the responsibility of the operating authority for the individual airport concerned. Operational decisions about the nature and deployment of police officers on counter-terrorism duties at airports are made by chief officers of individual forces.
Since 200203 those police forces in England and Wales with responsibility for policing an airport which does not hold designated status under the Aviation Security Act 1982 are entitled to apply for extraordinary general funding to provide an appropriate police presence in response to the current terrorist threat. The level of funding awarded to each force is determined by the Association of Chief Police Officers in full consultation with the Home Office and the individual force. For security reasons we do not make public the level of funding provided to an individual force for this purpose.
