Mr. Lammy: My Department does not provide training for local authority conservation officers. However, English Heritage offers a range of developmental opportunities for conservation officers and other historic environment professionals.
These include training organised through the Historic Environment Local Management (HELM) project, and through the Oxford University Department of Continuing Education Professional Training in the Historic Environment programme.
English Heritage also works closely with the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC). A recently completed English Heritage/IHBC survey of conservation officers in England will help to identify their training needs, and in turn inform future training provision.
Mike Penning: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what her Departments total spending was on advertising and promotional campaigns in each year since 1997; and what the cost of each campaign was, broken down by costs relating to (a) television, (b) radio and (c) print media. 
Mr. Woodward: The UK Film Council is working with the British Film Institute (BFI) and key stakeholders to develop a national film archive strategy and business plan. It is expected that this strategy for the BFI national archive and the eight regional film archives will be published on May 31 2007.
Mr. Swire: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment her Department has made of the effects of problem gambling; what estimate she has made of the numbers of problem gamblers; and what reports her Department has produced on problem gambling. 
Mr. Caborn: The current estimate is that 0.6 per cent. of the adult population of Great Britain are problem gamblers. This figure is drawn from Gambling Behaviour in Britain: Results from the British Gambling Prevalence Study (National Centre for Social Research, June 2000).
Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many licensed premises there are in Tamworth constituency and how many of these are (a) public houses, (b) clubs, (c) supermarkets and (d) off-licences. 
Hugh Robertson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will break down the funding allocated to (a) English Institute of Sport (EIS) services, (b) sports science and (c) sports medicine services for each Summer Olympic sport within their World Class Reference Pathway Funding through to 2009 as referred to in the answer of 29 June 2006, Official Report, columns 569-70W, on the Olympics. 
As part of the investment model, UK Sport is providing lottery funding of £10.5 million to the EIS for this and for each of the next two financial years. In addition, UK Sport has confirmed to Summer Olympic sports a guideline figure to be spent on sports science and sports medicine (SS/SM) services. The guideline figure provided to each sport is shown in the
following table. It is up to the individual sport in conjunction with UK Sport to agree the exact amount invested into SS/SM services. It is important to recognise that sports can purchase additional SS/SM services at any time and therefore there is no cut-off point when a sport will stop purchasing extra support.
