Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which grants for which his Department is responsible have been made to Westminster city council in each year since 1997-98; and what the value was of each grant. 
Mr. Byrne: The grants made to Westminster city council in each year since 1997-98 by this Department, as recorded by the council in the Communities and Local Government Revenue returns, are as follows.
This table sets out the specific grants inside aggregate external finance (AEF) (i.e. revenue grants paid for councils' core services) paid to Westminster and excludes grants outside AEF such as capital grants, funding for local authorities' housing management responsibilities, European funding; or where authorities are simply one of the recipients of funding paid towards an area. Revenue support grant and other elements of formula grant (such as redistributed business rates and police grant) have also been excluded.
Mrs. Ellman: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he last conducted an in-country assessment of Sudan in relation to the safety of rejected asylum seekers from Darfur; and if he will make a statement. 
Information about the conditions in Sudan including the security situation is obtained from a wide range of governmental and non-governmental sources, human rights organisations and the media.
This information is utilised by case owners responsible for decision making on asylum claims and is published in regularly updated Home Office country of origin information reports. The latest country of origin information report on Sudan was published in January 2007 and can be accessed on the Home Office website at:
Mr. Graham Stuart: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drug-related offences have been committed in each police authority area in each year since 1997; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Coaker: Data collected centrally on recorded crime do not identify whether offences are drug related. The recorded crime statistics do include the number of specific drug offences which are given in the tables.
|Table 1: Drug offences recorded by the police1997|
|Police force area||Number|
Prior to April 1998, trafficking in controlled drugs was the only drug offence included in the recorded crime series.
|Table 2: Drug offences recorded by the police1998-99 to 2001-02|
|Police force area||1998-99||1999-2000||2000-01||2001-02|
The introduction of the revised counting rules in April 1998 expanded the offence coverage. This included the addition of possession of controlled drugs and other drug offences. These data are not comparable with earlier years.
