Charles Hendry: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many websites there are within his responsibilities; and what the total cost of maintaining such websites was in the last year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Hanson: The Northern Ireland Civil Service Departments and their Agencies and the Northern Ireland Office and its Agencies have a total of 88 websites. During the last financial year the total cost of maintaining these websites was approximately £1,362,399.
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 19 April 2006, Official Report, column 723W, on dissident Republican paramilitaries, whether on 11 January he was in possession of any information to the effect that dissident Republican paramilitaries were engaged in a major recruitment drive in Northern Ireland. 
Paul Goggins: In previous answers to this question (27 February, 16 March and 19 April 2006) the hon. Member was advised that the 8th IMC report published on 1 February 2006, indicated evidence that dissident Republican groups were attempting to recruit members. I can advise that the 10th IMC report published on 26 April 2006 repeats this earlier assessment that dissident Republican groups are attempting to recruit members.
David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what total amount has been paid out by the Northern Ireland Memorial Fund in each year since it was created; how many people received money from the fund in each year; and how much has been paid out by the fund to people from (a) the Unionist community and (b) the nationalist/republican community. 
|Year ending||Amount (£)||Number of people|
Applicants are asked to provide details on how they meet the fund criteria in terms of bereavement or injury. The Northern Ireland Memorial Fund does not require details on community background and therefore cannot provide information relating to money paid in respect of either the Unionist or nationalist/republican community.
Mr. Peter Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many escapes from (a) prisons and (b) young offender institutions in Northern Ireland there have been in each year since 1990.

Mr. Peter Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many prosecutions there have been for supplying illegal drugs in prisons in Northern Ireland in each year since 1998. 
Mr. Hanson: The court proceedings and sentencing data sources do not include information on the circumstances surrounding the commission of an offence. While the total number of prosecutions for supplying illegal drugs is collated, those which occurred in prisons cannot be separately identified.
Mrs. Iris Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the average length of sentence in Northern Ireland for (a) rape and (b) serious sexual assault was in each of the last five years, broken down by whether the defendant pleaded guilty. 
Mr. Hanson: Due to a change in the data source for prosecutions and sentencing data, information disaggregated by defendant plea is not available beyond 1999. The 1999 data is provided in the following table.
