Margaret Hodge: I have had no discussions with Ofcom specifically on the question of viruses impacting on 3G phones. The Government believe that the security of communications is vital to consumer trust and confidence in the new technologies and the relevant parts of Government work together to achieve this within the overarching framework of the Government's information assurance strategy. A key element of this strategy is that the Government work with the technology vendors and the network service providers to both prevent problems arising and to help address those that do in a timely manner. Ofcom are a partner in this process.
Mr. Swire: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what total amount has been distributed by the Big Lottery Fund since its creation on projects in (a) health, (b) education and (c) the environment. 
Mr. Caborn: Unfortunately we are unable to provide the information in the format requested as the Big Lottery Fund do not categorise what they fund according to these headings. Although it has four elements, their good cause is actually a single good cause and as such they are not required to differentiate what grants go under which sub-sector.
Mr. Cox: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will take steps to support the efforts being made to preserve the Ross Sea Antarctic huts; and, following her answer of 9 October 2006, Official Report, column 63W, on the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust, what progress has been made in seeking private funds. 
Mr. Lammy: On 23 February the Government announced that they are to contribute £250,000 to the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust to support its work to restore Scott's hut at Cape Evans. DCMS has also asked Arts and Business to work with UKAHT on their fund raising campaign.
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many independent bodies existed to hear appeals on decisions made by her Department and its executive agencies in (a) 1997-98,
(b) 2001-02 and (c) 2005-06; and how many there have been in 2006-07 to date. 
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many complaints were received by her Department and its executive agencies in (a) 1997-98, (b) 2001-02 and (c) 2005-06; and how many have been received in 2006-07 to date. 
Lynne Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what strategy she has put in place for (a) the use of renewable energy and (b) meeting energy targets in her Departments buildings; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Lammy: DCMS anticipated the introduction of the gender equality duty by publishing a combined Equality Scheme in December 2006 addressing race, disability and gender. The Department is currently reviewing and updating that scheme and its action plan to ensure that it complies with the gender equality duty. An updated Equality Scheme will be published by 30 April 2007. The Department has also held an awareness seminar for our sponsored bodies and is encouraging compliance with the duty to publish an equality scheme by the April 2007 deadline.
