Mr. Coaker: The Home Office cannot estimate the total cost of tackling alcohol-related crime in England and Wales in the last 12 months because, in addition to national campaigns, local police, trading standards and Government Offices have been carrying out their own local initiatives. To collate that information would involve disproportionate cost.
Mr. Benyon: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department who conducted his Departments inquiry into the allegations made by The Sun newspaper relating to the allegations of Anthony Pamnani; and whether Mr. Pamnani was interviewed by the inquiry team. 
Mr. Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he last met representatives of the Jewish community to discuss anti-Semitic crimes; how many anti-Semitic crimes were committed in the most recent period for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. 
Simon Hughes: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Ministers and officials have (a) met and (b) requested briefings from (i) Southwark police, (ii) Southwark council, (iii) Southwark antisocial behaviour unit and (iv) the Home Office antisocial behaviour unit in relation to antisocial behaviour in the London borough of Southwark since May. 
John Reid: A Home Office study carried out in 2004 revealed that the average cost of obtaining an antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) was £2,500. This is a substantial reduction compared to an earlier review of costs published in 2002, which indicated an average cost of £4,000 to £5,000.
Mr. McNulty: A table giving the number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued since their introduction, as reported to the Home Office by the Court Service, by the local government authority area in which prohibitions have been imposed, up to 30 September 2005 (latest available), can be found on the Crime Reduction website at
David T.C. Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 19 June 2006, Official Report, column 1667W, on asylum and immigration, how much compensation was paid by the Immigration and Nationality Directorate to members of the public in each of the past five years. 
Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many failed asylum seekers who were required to report to (a) police stations and (b) Home Office reporting centres have failed to attend at least one reporting session since 1 January 2006. 
David Davis: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the cost of asylum seekers was to each local authority in 2005-06; and what estimate he has made of the cost to each local authority in 2006-07. 
Mr. Slaughter: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applications for indefinite leave to remain were received in 2005-06; and how many were (a) granted and (b) refused. 
Mr. Byrne: A total of 126,699 applications for indefinite leave to remain were received by the Immigration Nationality Directorate's (IND) General Group between April 2005 and March 2006; of which 93,122 were granted indefinite leave to remain and 6,090 were refused.
Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what steps are in place to assess the numbers of those refused applicants for indefinite leave to remain who have not complied with the Home Office request that they leave the country voluntarily; and if he will make a statement; 
(2) how much time must lapse after a final refusal notification for indefinite leave to remain with no further rights of appeal before his Department considers the failed applicant to have not left the country voluntarily; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Byrne: The Government adopt an intelligence- led approach to operations to tackle the activities of immigration offenders, including overstayers. As set out to Parliament on 25 July 2006, in the IND review, steps are in place to implement the development of intelligence-led exit controls and move to a point where we can identify all overstayers and take action against them.
The length of time that lapses before an applicant, whose application for ILR has been refused and who has not left the country voluntarily and remains in the United Kingdom unlawfully, will depend on a number of factors, not least whether the person had valid leave of another description at the time of applying for ILR.
