(1) Aiding, abetting, causing or permitting a crime is shown under the heading of the crime itself.
(2) Estimates made for Staffordshire Police Force who were only able to submit data for a sample of weeks in 2000, have been included in totals only.
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.
Mr. Peter Ainsworth: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 13 September 2006, Official Report, column 2259W, on Natural England, what the (a) original and (b) revised 2006-07 budget agreed for Natural England was; and what plans he has for the 2007-08 budget. 
Barry Gardiner: Natural England inherited its budget for 2006-07 from English Nature, the Rural Development Service and parts of the Countryside Agency, which came together to create the new organisation. It is therefore not strictly possible to make the comparison the hon. Member is looking for.
Mr. Dai Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs when he expects to respond to the recommendations of the Committee on Radioactive Waste; and which bodies he is consulting in preparing his response. 
Ian Pearson: The UK Government and the devolved administrations are continuing to work together to develop policy in light of the recommendations from the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM). A full response will be made to the respective parliaments and the National Assembly for Wales when they are sitting after recess. CoRWM themselves undertook an extensive programme of engagement with the public and stakeholders in preparing their recommendations.

Household waste recycling and composting has doubled in the last four years since the publication of Waste Strategy 2000 (and tripled in the last eight years). In 1999, less than 11 per cent. of household waste was recycled; this now stands at 23 per cent. (2004-5), putting us well on course to meet the waste strategy targets of 25 per cent. by 2005-06 and 33 per cent. by 2015.
The recent consultation on the review of the waste strategy included proposals to raise the national targets for household waste recycling and composting to even more ambitious levels, to reach 45 per cent. by 2015 and 50 per cent. by 2020. The revised waste strategy is due to be published this winter.
