Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what total amount of employers' normal contributions accruing superannuation liability charge have been accounted for by his Department in each of the last five years for which data are available. 
Mr. Clifton-Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much UK aid will be provided (a) bilaterally and (b) multilaterally to promote and further democracy in 200607. 
Mr. Thomas: DFID tracks its bilateral expenditure by monitoring expenditure against specific sector objectives, one of which is improved governance. This includes different aspects of state building such as support to improve popular participation in the decision making process, and building capacity to improve government's accountability to its citizens. It also covers the encouragement of more pluralist and democratic political systems.
Some funding decisions are still being taken, however, given the importance that DFID attaches to governance, I would expect the share of bilateral governance expenditure to be at least maintained at current levels, and probably increased. Based on figures for 200506 this suggests somewhere in the order of £347 million or 13.9 per cent. of the total bilateral spend.
In addition, DFID provides funding to a number of multilateral institutions such as the European Development Fund, World Bank, United Nations Agencies and Regional Development Banks, and this is pooled with other donors. In many cases these institutions support a range of activities, including governance. The UK share of this is not tracked.
Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will list (a) the websites operated by her Department and (b) the reports placed on the internet in March 2006, indicating in each case whether paper copies were also made available.

Ben Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1) what research her Department has (a) carried out and (b) commissioned into of internet gambling addiction among young people; 
Mr. Caborn: In 2001, the National Lottery Commission published research monitoring trends in the level of participation in National Lottery games by 12 to 15-year-olds. The research also looked into the prevalence of problem gambling by under-16s and considered under-16s participation in some other forms of gambling, but not internet gambling. (Under-16s and the National lottery Tracking Survey, July 2000.)
This research is being updated currently and the results, which are due to be published at the end of summer 2006, will include some comparative information about under-16s participation in other forms of gambling, irrespective of the way in which facilities to gamble are provided, and will also contain specific information on internet lottery use.
Meg Hillier: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions she has had with (a) local authorities, (b) the Olympic Delivery Authority and (c) other agencies on the future of Hackney Marshes and the Olympic precinct in Hackney following the Games in 2012. 
The London Development Agency is currently working with the London borough of Hackney to develop a comprehensive proposal of improvements for the future of the Marshes, recognising that it is a very important local recreational facility and ecological site. It is expected that plans for the Marshes will be publicly consulted on over the summer.
27 Apr 2006 : Column 1235W
In terms of the temporary use of East Marsh during the Games, this part of the Marshes will be fully restored after the Games as part of the overall improvement plan for the Marshes. Restoring East Marsh back to its current use is a commitment that the Games stakeholders are firmly committed to; furthermore it is a legally binding condition of the planning consent granted in October 2004.
In line with Hackney borough council's aspirations, the legacy development will provide space for industrial and other workspace units and areas of new open space. In addition, one of the three indoor arenas will be retained in order to provide a sports venue for Hackney.
The Olympic Delivery Authority, which has recently been established, will be working with boroughs and other stakeholders to ensure that there are viable and sustainable legacy plans for all permanent venues and infrastructure.
