Mr. Lidington: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Government informed any political party in Northern Ireland of its decision to abolish the Assets Recovery Agency in advance of his written statement to Parliament. 
Mr. Coaker: The Government did not inform any political party of its plans to merge the Assets Recovery Agency and the Serious Organised Crime Agency in advance of the written statement on 11 January 2007, Official Report, column 21WS.
Sandra Gidley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the impact on response to crime in Hampshire of the planned reduction in funding for police community support officers. 
The funding for neighbourhood policing in Hampshire, including police community support officers (PCSOs), will increase by 46 per cent. from £4.8 million in 2006-07 to £7 million in 2007-08. By April 2007 Hampshire constabulary will have 333 PCSOs. They will play an important part in the
continuing roll out of neighbourhood policing which will further reduce the fear of crime and address antisocial behaviour.
The Home Office has provided funding though the Neighbourhood Policing Fund to increase the number of PCSOs in Lancashire to 417. It is a matter for the Chief Constable how these are deployed across the force area.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will write to the hon. Member for Brent, East on the subject of the deportation of Irish nationals; and if he will place a copy of the letter in the Library. 
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prosecutions there have been since 1996 for (a) the murder of a child or young person under 18, (b) the manslaughter of a child or young person under 18, (c) common assault and battery and (d) cruelty to a person under 16 where the prosecuted person had parental responsibility for the victim, or was the partner of the person with parental responsibility. 
Mr. McNulty [holding answer 11 January 2007]: Data from the court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform on the number of defendants proceeded against at magistrates courts in England and Wales for offences relating to cruelty or neglect of children for the years 1996 to 2005, are provided in the following table.
Information on the familial relationship between defendant and victim is not held centrally. From the court proceedings database it is also not possible to identify the number of prosecutions for common assault and battery where victims were under 18 years of age.
Latest data from the Homicide Index were published in table 2.09 of Violent Crime Overview, Homicide and Gun Crime 2004/2005 (HOSB 02/06). The table provided shows the number of suspects indicted where the victim was aged under 18.

|(1) These data are on the principal offence basis.|
(2) 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.

|(1). As at 28 November 2005; figures are subject to revision as cases are dealt with by the police and the courts, or as further information becomes available. Figures for 2003-04 and 2004-05 are therefore likely to rise as cases progress through court.|
(2) Offences are shown by the year in which they were initially recorded by police as homicide. This is not necessarily the year in which the incident took place or the year in which any court decision was made.
(3) In addition there were 402 suspects in 2004-05, for whom court proceedings were not completed by 28 November 2005.
(4) Three corporate manslaughters were included in 2000-01 and one in 2001-02.
(5) The offences for which these persons were indicted may nevertheless remain currently recorded as homicide.
(6) This usually implies that the suspect has been dealt with for some less serious offence.
Based on table 2.09 of Violent Crime Overview, Homicide and Gun Crime 2004/2005 (HOSB 02/06).
