As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question regarding what estimate has been made of (a) the total number of people who are not on their local electoral register but are eligible to vote, (b) the total number of people who are on the local electoral register but should not be, (c) the total number of people who appear on more than one electoral register, and (d) the total number of people who appear more than once in a single electoral register. (137630)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) does not make any regular estimates of these figures.
On occasion, the ONS has been commissioned to estimate the degree of non-registration of the eligible population. The Electoral Commission study "Understanding electoral registration" http://www.electoralcommission.org./templates/search/document.cfm/13545 reported the most recent estimate. The ONSs best estimate for non-registration among the eligible household population in England and Wales at 15 October 2000 lies between 8% and 9%. This estimate equates to approximately 3.5 million people.

Mr. Peter Hain: I still have overall responsibility for maintaining political stability in Northern Ireland, and for a number of excepted and reserved matters, notably elections, constitutional rights and policing and justice functions.
13. Mr. McGrady: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what steps he plans to take to reduce crime in Northern Ireland under the continuing modernisation and review of the criminal justice system. 
But we need to keep up our efforts. The reforms in policing and criminal justice have provided us with modern and effective institutions. Better partnership working has seen dramatic improvements in reducing domestic burglaries and vehicle crime. A new community safety strategy will be published this year. We are working on a strategy to reduce re-offending.
We look forward to discussing these issues in detail with elected representatives in Northern Ireland, who I hope will take over responsibility for them as soon as possible, in line with the St Andrews agreement.
Mr. Hayes: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what proportion of state assets previously administered by his Department are now under the remit of the Northern Irish Assembly; what their capital value is; and if he will make a statement. 
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for which Government websites he is responsible; how many visitors each received in the latest period for which figures are available; and what the cost (a) was of establishing and (b) has been of maintaining each site.

Malcolm Bruce: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many convictions there were in Northern Ireland for the offence of drink driving in each year since 2001; and how many resulted in (a) a prison sentence, (b) mandatory disqualification from driving and (c) the maximum fine. 
It is not possible to determine the total number who were disqualified from driving due to drink driving offences, as this information is not broken down separately. The figures provided in the table, therefore, relate to those sentenced to a fine and/or disqualification.

|(1) Includes offences of driving with excess alcohol in breath, attempting to drive with excess alcohol in breath, in charge with excess alcohol in breath, driving with excess alcohol in blood, attempting to drive with excess alcohol in blood, in charge with excess alcohol in blood, driving with excess alcohol in urine, in charge with excess alcohol in urine, driving when unfit through drink or drugs, attempting to drive when unfit through drink or drugs, in charge when unfit through drink or drugs. For the three latter offences which refer to drink or drugs it is not possible to determine from the dataset whether the offender was under the influence of drink or drugs.|
(2) Other disposals include suspended custody, supervision in the community and conditional discharge.
(3) Data are collated on the principal offence rule; thus only the most serious offence with which an offender is charged is included.
