Mr. Pickles: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what powers local authorities have to regulate day-time bonfires. [51085]

Mr. Bradshaw: I have been asked to reply.

Bonfires on domestic and business premises are regulated by local authorities under the statutory nuisance provisions in sections 79 to 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Local authorities have a duty to investigate complaints of smoke from premises that might be prejudicial to health or a nuisance, and if satisfied that a statutory nuisance exists or is likely to occur or recur an abatement notice must be served requiring the abatement of the nuisance or the restriction of its occurrence or recurrence. Failure to comply with the terms of an abatement notice will, upon summary conviction, result in a fine of up to £5,000 for domestic premises and £20,000 for business premises, in addition, section 2 of the Clean Air Act 1993 prohibits emissions of dark smoke from the open burning of material on industrial and trade premises. The Act provides a maximum fine of £20,000.

Councils (Discussions)

Mr. Drew: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what guidance he has issued on the rights of councillors to initiate discussions on matters which may be opposed by the council executive. [49440]

Mr. Woolas: The New Council Constitutions Guidance, issued by the Government to assist implementation of Part II of the Local Government Act 2000, gives advice on the role of members in the local authority decision-making process, including their role on overview and scrutiny committees.

Departmental Assets

David T.C. Davies: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will list the items of departmental property worth over £100 that have been reported as (a) lost and (b) broken in the last 12 months. [47685]

Jim Fitzpatrick: No items of property belonging to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and its agencies were reported as (a) lost and (b) broken in the last 12 months. However, two laptops previously reported as lost in my reply to the hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green on 30 June 2005, Official Report, column 1651W are now reported as stolen.

This answer does not include property owned by Government Offices, who carry out functions on behalf of ten Government Departments.

Departmental Catering Budget

Andrew George: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what his Department's policy is on the procurement of fair trade produce for consumption on its premises. [49927]

Jim Fitzpatrick: The purchasing policy of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister reflects the Government's value for money policy and the EU procurement rules, which require the procurement of goods and services to be based on value for money and acquired by competition unless there are convincing reasons to the contrary, and the objectives of the office.

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister does not specify a requirement of fair or ethically traded products, but does welcome fair trade options as a part of any contracts for the supply of catering or hospitality services.


Shona McIsaac: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what the levels of deprivation were in each lower level super output area in (a) Cleethorpes constituency and
15 Feb 2006 : Column 2155W
(b) Great Grimsby constituency in the last year for which figures are available, in ascending order from the most deprived. [42104]

Yvette Cooper: The following table lists the ranks for each lower layer super output area (LLSOA) in (a) Cleethorpes constituency and (b) in Great Grimsby constituency, based on the Indices of Deprivation 2004, which is the last index available.

In considering the data please note that these are national ranks, with the most deprived LLSOA in England being given a rank of one and the least deprived being ranked 32,482.
