Mr. McNulty: The British Parking Association, who manage the safer parking scheme on behalf of the Association of Chief Police Officers, advise that on 21 July 2006 there were 2,156 car parks within England and Wales holding the scheme's Park Mark award. The location of each of these is on a list which I have placed in the Library today.
The Home Office believes significant improvements should be made in car park safety. The industry is responding to this challenge and I do not think it is currently necessary for the Government to develop proposals to change the law relating to car parks so as to achieve a reduction in crime. But I will want to review the position in about 12 months time to ensure the industry achieves the improvements that the Government expect.
Mr. Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) police officers and (b) Immigration and Nationality Directorate staff were present at the removal of Sakchoi Macao on 6 June 2006; where the officers are normally based; and what the cost was of the transportation of these officers to and from Shetland. 
Mr. Byrne [holding answer 12 June 2006]: Three police officers and two Immigration and Nationality Directorate staff were present during the operation to detain the individual concerned. These officers are normally based in Shetland and Aberdeen. The costs incurred in the transportation of officers from Aberdeen to Shetland and back were £990.
Mr. Byrne: The number of Home Office passes reported lost or stolen in 2004 was 321. The number reported in 2005 was 292 (lost) and 18 (stolen) and in 2006 to end of June 155 (lost) and three (stolen).
Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) former and (b) current employees (excluding agents) of (i) MI5 and (ii) MI6 have been imprisoned in the UK in each of the last five years. 
(2) how many convictions for (a) drink driving and (b) each other motoring offence resulted in custodial sentences in each year since 1997, broken down by sex; and what percentage each figure represents of the total number of convictions resulting in custodial sentences. 
Information taken from the Court Proceedings Database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform on convictions and custodial sentences for drink driving and other motoring offences as a proportion of total custodial sentences for all offences for 1997 to 2004 (latest available) is given in the following table. Data for 2005 will be available early in 2007.
|Table H: Number of persons( 1) found guilty and sentenced to immediate custody( 2) at all courts for motoring offences, by sex and individual offence and as a proportion of all offenders given immediate custody, England and Wales, 2004|
|Number of persons|
|Offence||Total found guilty||Immediate custody||Males given immediate custody( ) as a percentage of all persons given immediate custody||Total found guilty||Immediate custody||Females given immediate custody as a percentage of all persons given immediate custody|
|(1) These data are based on the principal offence basis. (2) Immediate custody = Detention and Training Order, Detained under s90-92 Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000, Young Offender Institution & Unsuspended sentence of imprisonment. (3 )0.0 = less than 0.05 per cent. (4 )= nil. Notes: Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.|
