1. 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 currently 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.
2. 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.
Ann Coffey: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 25 January 2007, Official Report, column 2029W, on support orders, if she will place in the Library the results of the three month survey of 50 respect action areas to assess the use of individual support orders. 
Mr. Coaker: The survey has been extended to allow further data to be received. The results are due to be published on the Home Office website and a copy will be placed in the Library in the next few months. In the meantime, we are continuing to work with Her Majestys Court Service and the Youth Justice Board to ensure that young people on antisocial behaviour orders receive support in addressing their antisocial behaviour.
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster which Bills introduced by his Department in the last five years contained sunset clauses; and what plans he has for the future use of such clauses. 
Edward Miliband: No bills introduced by the Cabinet Office in the last five years contained sunset clauses. The appropriateness of a sunset clause for the whole or part of any proposed legislation is considered on a case-by-case basis. It is also addressed when a regulatory impact assessment relating to legislation is being prepared.
Norman Baker: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) what role his Department plays in providing (a) guidance and (b) assistance to other departments on the provision of answers to written parliamentary questions; 
(2) where, at what point and by whom the decision is taken to recommend to Ministers that an identical answer might be provided when similar written parliamentary questions are tabled to different departments. 
Edward Miliband: I refer the hon. Member to the answer that the then Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Hilary Armstrong) gave the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Amess) on 11 July 2006, Official Report, column 1825W.
