Hilary Armstrong: It is not possible to readily identify from the Department's accounting system, how much was paid to recruitment consultants in each year since 1997. This information is therefore only available at disproportionate cost.
Hilary Armstrong: The next tranche of capability reviews will be published before the summer recess. The Departments being reviewed in this tranche are the Department for Transport, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Department of Health. The remaining Departments will be reviewed by the end of the year.
Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether her Delivery Unit has conducted any review in the last five years of the provision of out-of-hours care by general practitioners in the NHS. 
Hilary Armstrong: PMDUs role is to monitor and report on delivery of the Prime Ministers top delivery and reform priorities. Out-of-hours care is not currently one of the areas on which PMDUs health team works.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster pursuant to the answer of 16 May 2007, Official Report, column 797W, on the policy review, whether any other payments have been made to other external organisations as part of the policy review. 
Hilary Armstrong: Apart from the payments noted in previous answers given by the Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office (Mr. McFadden), to the hon. Member for North-East Hertfordshire (Mr. Heald) on 26 January 2007, Official Report, column 2127W, and to the hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs. May) on 8 February 2007, Official Report, columns 1103-04W, the only significant payments to external organisations in connection with the policy reviews have been to typesetters and printers for the publication of the first five reviews (£97,393).
Malcolm Bruce: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how many convictions there were in each police authority in England and Wales 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. 
Mr. Sutcliffe: Available information taken from the court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform, from 2001 to 2004 (latest available) is provided in the following tables.
|Table A: Total findings of guilt at all courts and resultant custody, maximum fine imposed and disqualifications, for the offence of driving etc. after consuming alcohol or taking drugs(1), by police force area, England and Wales, 2001|
|Police force area||Total findings of guilt||Immediate custody( 2)||Maximum fine (£)||Disqualified( 3)|
|(1 )Offences under the Road Traffic Act 1988 ss. 4 (1) & (2); 5 (1) and (b); 6 (4) and 7 (6).|
(2) Immediate Custody = Detention and Training Order, Young Offender Institution and Unsuspended sentence of imprisonment.
(3 )Disqualifications given as a secondary disposal. This covers cases where a disqualification from driving was given instead of a licence endorsement. This excludes cases where a defendant was disqualified under the penalty points or totting up system (s35 Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988). S.35 R.T.O.A. data for specific offences at force area level are not sufficiently robust.
(4) Statutory maximum fine (£5,000) was issued once in Nottinghamshire police force area only.
Note 1: Standard Rate maximum fine is Level 5 (£5,000).
Note 2: It is known that for some police force areas, the reporting of court proceedings, in particular those relating to summary motoring offences, may be less than complete. Work is underway to ensure that the magistrates courts case management system being implemented by the Ministry of Justice reports all motoring offences to the Office for Criminal Justice Reform. This will enable more complete figures to be disseminated.
Note 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 the courts and police forces. 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.
