Mrs. Iris Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what estimate he has made of the number of women employed in Northern Ireland doing low-paid work on a part-time basis; and if he will make a statement. 
Maria Eagle: It is not possible to provide estimates of the number of women employed in Northern Ireland doing low-paid work on a part-time basis using minimum wage definitions. This is because the sample size of the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) used for this purpose is too small to provide reliable estimates. For information, ASHE estimates that the lowest paid 10 per cent. of part-time female employees (approximately 12,000) earned less than £4.85 per hour(1), excluding overtime, in April 2005.
(1) This estimate is for part-time female employees of all ages on adult rates of pay, and with no loss of earnings during the survey reference period. The estimate does not reflect compliance with the national minimum wage levels which vary by age group.
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on what grounds the contracts of employment in the Northern Ireland Police Fund of (a) Mr. Desmond Clayton and (b) Mr. Thomas Hale were terminated; what the total cost was of the severance package for each; and what budget the severance packages were paid from. 
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much public money has been made available to support the Gaelic Athletic Association in Northern Ireland in each of the last 10 years. 
Mr. Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many vehicles per day on average used the Glenshane Pass in either direction between Dungiven and Maghera in the latest period for which figures are available. 
You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question regarding how many vehicles per day on average used the Glenshane Pass in either direction between Dungiven and Maghera in the latest period for which figures are available.
As this issue falls within my responsibility as Chief Executive of Roads Service, I have been asked to reply.
By way of background I should explain that Roads Service collects traffic volume data by means of 270 automatic census points strategically located throughout the Northern Ireland road network. The information is recorded for one week in each
quarter during the year and an annual average calculated. The results are published in Roads Services annual Traffic and Travel Information Report, which presents the traffic volumes in a variety of formats for each site.
Roads Service have a counter on the A6 Castledawson to Dungiven road, west of Maghera at Ranaghan. The latest data on the average daily number of vehicles using the Glenshane Pass in either direction between Dungiven and Maghera is shown in the table below.
