Mr. Jeremy Browne: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) arrests were made and (b) convictions were secured under section 139A of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 for the offence of having an article with a blade or point or an offensive weapon on school premises in each of the last five years, broken down by age group. 
Mr. McNulty [holding answer 16 April 2007]: Information on arrests for recorded crime offences under s139 and 139A of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 (as amended by s4(1) of the Offensive Weapons Act 1996) and s1 of the Prevention of Crime Act 1953 (as amended by s2(1) of the Offensive Weapons Act 1996) are not separately identifiable within the arrests collection held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform. The collection is based on persons arrested for recorded crime (notifiable offences) by main offence group (i.e. violence against the person, robbery, burglary, criminal damage etc) only.
|Number of persons found guilty at all courts for certain offences( 1,2,3) , England and Wales 2001 to 2005|
|Offence description||Statute||Year||Aged 10 to 11||Aged 12 to 14||Aged 15 to 17||Aged 18 and over||All ages|
|(1) These data are on the principal offence basis. (2) Data for "having an article with blade or point on school premises" excludes convictions for West Mercia PFA until clarification of these cases is obtained. (3) 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 police forces and courts. 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.|

SOCA also has a number of officers seconded from other agencies and of these 168 are designated with the power of arrest.

Financial investigation is a fundamental part of all counter-terrorist investigations. The Money Laundering Regulations 2003 place a number of requirements on the regulated sector, such as to identify their customers and hold customer records,
and to have in place other procedures which in turn support the reporting of suspicious activity, which have proved valuable in the wider terrorist effort.
Norman Baker: To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission what quantity of (a) beers and ciders, (b) aperitifs, fortified wines and spirits and (c) wines were purchased by the Refreshment Department in each of the last three years; what the cost of these purchases was in each year; and what percentage of each of these items was imported. 
|April 2006 to February 2007( 1)||Quantity (litres)||Estimated cost of purchases (£)||Percentage quantity imported|
|(1) 11 months|
Detailed purchase information is not currently available for the year 2005-06 due to technical issues that are being investigated by the software supplier. The Director of Catering Services will write to the hon. Member with the requested information when it becomes available.
The software used by the Refreshment Department does not retain historical information of purchases on a product-by-product basis for earlier years. However, I would remind the hon. Member that information about beverage purchase quantities and the percentage of imported products for the 11 months from April 2004 until February 2005 has previously been provided to him. I corrected the information originally provided by my predecessor in my letter to the hon. Member on 21 November 2005, but for ease of reference I set out in full the corrected information provided to his previous question tabled in March 2005:
|April 2004 to February 2005( 1)||Quantity (litres)||Percentage quantity imported|
