Mr. Heald: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice pursuant to the answer of 6 June 2007, Official Report, column 605W, on Prisons: Rochester, what related demolition or construction works have already been undertaken at HMP Rochester; 
(2) who authorised the commencement of building work at Rochester Prison. 
Mr. Sutcliffe: Some preparatory work has been carried out on site. I took the decision that no further work should be carried out pending the outcome of the planning application which has yet to be determined. The main building work has not therefore commenced.
Robert Key: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice when work will start on the construction of the Salisbury Justice Centre; and when the centre will come into service. 
Ms Harman: It is planned that work will start on the construction of the Salisbury Justice Centre by the end of July 2007 and coming into service during the early summer 2009.
Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice whether the Valuation Office Agency will have access to the Land Registry's Chain Matrix system. 
Vera Baird: The Chain Matrix system which, as a prototype, is currently being tested, is a dedicated website that tracks the progress of a chain of residential property transactions starting with the issue of contract through to exchange and completion. There is no business need for the Valuation Office Agency to have access to the system and Land Registry has no arrangements or plans to provide the agency with Chain Matrix data.
Mr. Vara: To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how many (a) suicides, (b) attempted suicides, (c) self-harm incidents and (d) prisoner-on-prisoner assaults there were in young offender institutions in each year since 1997. 
Mr. Sutcliffe: The following table shows the numbers of apparently self-inflicted deaths in Young Offender Institutions since 1997.
|Number of self-inflicted deaths( 1)|
|(1 )The Prison Service definition of self-inflicted deaths is broader than the legal definition of suicide and includes all deaths where it appears that a prisoner has acted specifically to take their own life.|

The following table shows the numbers of recorded self-harm incidents in Young Offender Institutions since 1997.
|(1 )The numbers of recorded self-harm incidents (or figures derived from them) before and after 2003 (when improvements for self-harm recording were introduced under the new F213SH procedures) should not be compared directly.|
Figures overall should not be taken as absolute.
The information requested at (d) in relation to prisoner on prisoner assaults is provided in the following table. Data for 1997-99 are not centrally available and could only be provided at disproportionate cost. They should not be taken as absolute.
|(1 )Excludes data from establishments also holding older prisoners.|
(2) Up to 28 April
Mr. Hayes: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what percentage of apprenticeships are part of the programme-led pathway; and what percentage of apprentices on the programme-led pathway successfully complete the full framework. 
Phil Hope: I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Havant (Mr. Willetts) on 26 March 2007, Official Report, column 1272W.
Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many apprenticeships were (a) created and (b) completed in each of the last three years. 
Phil Hope: Figures for apprenticeships completed can be derived from the Learning and Skills Councils (LSC) work based learning (WBL) individualised learner record (ILR).
(a) The volume of learner starts on apprenticeship frameworks is published by the LSC in the annual Statistical First Release Further Education, Work Based Learning and Adult and Community LearningLearner numbers in England. The volumes for the previous two full years are collated in the following table. The data for 2003/04 showed the number of learners as opposed to the number of starts and therefore are not consistent with the latest data.
|Advanced apprenticeship s||Apprenticeship s|
(b) The number of achievers (students who successfully completed the framework) for the last three years are shown in the following table.
|Advanced apprenticeship s||Apprenticeship s|
Numbers are rounded to the nearest 10 learners.

Phil Hope: Data on Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships are collected on the Learning and Skills Councils (LSC) Individualised Learner Record (ILR). The table shows the volume and percentage of apprenticeship training providers funded by the LSC broken down by provider type for each region in England in 2005/06. It is not possible to associate learning providers to Sector Skills Councils.
