He has been employed since October 2005 to assist HMRC with its efforts to encourage parents to open and contribute to Child Trust Fund (CTF) savings accounts for their children, and he has been paid a total of £75,000 since that date. His activities in that period have included:
providing interviews to national and specialist parenting publications, including information about the CTF and savings tips for parents;
helping to produce a simple guide for parents to choose the CTF account which is right for their circumstances;
contributing to an interactive film which helps parents to understand the account-opening process, run in ante-natal clinics and other outlets;
providing advice on the CTF during parent-and-child sessions at baby show events; and
providing interviews throughout CTF week in January 2007, encouraging parents to engage in their children's CTF accounts, including contributing to advertorials and the CTF pack going out to parents across the country.
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer for what reasons clean electricity generated
using carbon capture and storage technology is subject to the climate change levy. 
John Healey: The climate change levy is a tax on non-domestic use of energy aimed at promoting energy efficiency. As there are currently no commercial-scale power generation plants in the UK which deploy carbon capture and storage the issue of liability to pay the levy in respect of electricity generated from such plants does not arise.
At Budget 2007 the Government announced a competition to launch the UK's first full-scale carbon capture and storage demonstration. This demonstration will provide the evidence which will enable us to take informed policy decisions, including on taxation issues.
Mr. Fallon: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what powers are available to him in relation to the recovery of costs to the public purse caused by decisions by private sector companies in relation to coinage use and supply; 
(3) whether he plans to recover the cost to the public purse in relation to coinage in 2006-07 arising from Tescos change of cash supplier from (a) Tesco and (b) Tescos new supplier of cash. 
Ed Balls: It is Government policy to meet demand for UK coinage. This minimises the risk that the public or businesses might find themselves short of coins, which in turn might restrict economic activity. The Treasury pays for the production of UK circulating coins while the Exchequer receives all seignorage. Overall, this generates a net inflow of capital for the public purse. Fluctuations in demand for UK coinage can occur for a variety of reasons and it is not normally possible to quantify the impact of any one specific factor.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) originally estimated, (b) most recently estimated and (c) outturn cost was of each of the five largest information technology contracts agreed by his Department with outside suppliers in the last five years, as referred to in the answer of 22 May 2006, Official Report, columns 1431-32W, on information technology. 
John Healey: It is the Treasury's departmental policy to log all reports of accidents to assist with the effectiveness of its accident-prevention measures and its health and safety training for staff. The number of accidents recorded for the last six years which were reported as having caused injuries are as follows:
Mr. Harper: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many deaths in (a) Gloucestershire, (b) the Forest of Dean, (c) England and (d) the UK have been attributed to the illegal use of ketamine in the last five years. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many deaths in (a) Gloucestershire, (b) the Forest of Dean, (c) England and (d) the UK have been attributed to the illegal use of ketamine in the last five years. I am replying in her absence. (136072)
The most recent year for which figures are available is 2005. The table below shows the number of deaths for which the underlying cause was drug-related poisoning, where ketamine was mentioned on the death record, for England and the United Kingdom for the calendar years 2001 to 2005. There were no drug-related poisoning deaths which mentioned ketamine registered to residents of Gloucestershire or the Forest of Dean between 2001 and 2005.
In January 2006, ketamine was re-classified as a Class C drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. However, during the period covered in the table below ketamine was not given a misuse classification. It is therefore not possible to tell from ONS mortality data whether the use of ketamine in these deaths was illegal.
|Number of deaths from drug-related poisoning where ketamine was mentioned on the death record( 1) , England and United Kingdom( 2) , 2001 to 2005( 3)|
|(1) Cause of death was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes F11-F16, F18-F19, X40-X44, X60-X64, X85 and Y10-Y14 and where ketamine was mentioned on the death record. This includes deaths where ketamine was mentioned alone and where ketamine was mentioned with other substances. Where multiple substances are mentioned in the death record it is not possible to tell which of them was primarily responsible for the death.|
(2) Figures refer to deaths to residents of England and to all deaths within the United Kingdom.
(3) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 12 March 2007, Official Report, column 98W, on Economic and Monetary Union, how many people were employed by the Euro Preparations Unit in each year since 1997, broken down by grade.
