The TDA does not hold or collect information on how much either of these two universities spends directly on ITT. Although mainstream grant funding represents the single biggest source of funding for ITT, there are other sources such as tuition fees; and individual universities have discretion about how they allocate their total resources between ITT and non-ITT activities.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the average cost was of training a (a) primary and (b) secondary school teacher in each financial year since 1999-2000. 
Kevin Brennan: The Training and Development Agency for Schools in England (TDA) allocates grant funding to accredited initial teacher training (ITT) providers for the purpose of delivering initial teacher training courses. The amount of funding is based on the number of ITT trainees recruited and registered on courses. The unit of funding varies according to the type of ITT. The TDA does not collect information on how providers use that funding as the cost is only a comparatively small part of the total cost of ITT. Therefore, the Department does not hold comparable information on the average cost of training primary and secondary teachers.
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many full-time equivalent (a) teachers and (b) non-teaching assistants there were in local education authority schools in (i) Yorkshire and Humber and (ii) City of York in (A) 1997 and (B) 2006. 
Jim Knight: The following table provides the full-time equivalent number of regular teachers, teaching assistants and other support staff in local authority maintained schools in Yorkshire and the Humber Government Office Region and the City of York local authority In January 1997 and 2006.

My Department does not hold information on publicly funded post-16 places at individual provider level. I am therefore copying this to Mark Haysom, the Learning and Skills Councils Chief Executive, so that he can respond with the detailed information you have requested. A copy of his reply will be placed in the House Library.
Mr. Bellingham: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 12 June 2007, Official Report, column 949W, on Feltham Young Offender Institution and Remand Centre, who was responsible for carrying out the investigation into the so-called Muslim Olympics at the institution; who commissioned the investigation; who heard the disciplinary proceedings; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many fixed penalty notices were issued by Essex Police in (a) 2003, (b) 2004, (c) 2005 and (d) 2006; how many of those notices have been paid; how many have been sent to be determined in court; and how many have remained unanswered. 
Mr. Hanson: The information collected by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform identifies the number of motoring offences fixed penalty notices issued by result at police force area level. Data are collected on the disposal, (i.e. paid, fine registration certificate issued etc.). However because of the time taken for the procedures for payment to be enforced the data are collected approximately nine months later than the period of issue and published in the following years' annual volume covering motoring offences.
2003 data are provided in Table A. 2004 data will be published in the autumn in the publication Offences Relating to Motor Vehicles, England and Wales 2005, Supplementary Tables. It is expected that 2005 data will be published in 2008 and 2006 data in 2009.
The penalty notice for disorder (PND) scheme was rolled out to police forces in England and Wales in 2004 under the provisions of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001. Data on the number of the penalty notices issued, paid, contested in court as well as unpaid PNDs registered as fines, for 2004 and 2005 in Essex, are provided in Table B. In addition, provisional data show that a further 4,357 PNDs were issued in 2006; detailed information on the number paid, contested in court and fine registered will be available this autumn.
Under the scheme, the police are able to issue penalty notices of either £50 or £80 for a specified range of minor disorder offences. The recipient of a PND has 21 days to either pay the penalty or seek a court hearing. If the recipient takes no action and the notice remains unanswered, a fine of one-and-a-half times the penalty amount is registered against them.
The courts are responsible for enforcing PNDs in the same way as any other unpaid fine.

Sir Gerald Kaufman: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice when he will answer the letter to his predecessor transferred from the Home Office and dated 29 May, from the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton with regard to Paul Southworth. 
(2) how many cautions were issued in West Yorkshire in each of the last five years; for what categories of offences cautions were issued; and whether cautions may be repeated for the same offence. 
The number of persons aged 10 to 15 cautioned for all offences in West Yorkshire police force area for the years 2001 to 2005, along with the number of defendants of all ages cautioned by offence type in West Yorkshire police force area, and the number of defendants of all ages cautioned for sexual offences in England and Wales for the years 2001 to 2005 can be viewed in the following tables. This information is from the court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform.
Information on cautions collected by the police is only reported to the Office for Criminal Justice Reform broken down at force area level, not by police division, so it is not possible to separately identify the number of cautions in Leeds from our data.
Technically an offender could receive a second caution for a similar offence but it should be in very extenuating circumstances. The Home Office Circular discourages repeat use of the same penalty with the same offender. Someone who offends again needs to know that the next response will be a tougher one. And where a serious offence is committed, then the case should go to court.
Therefore both national and locally held records must be checked before a caution is given. If the
suspect has previously received a caution then a further caution should not normally be considered. If there has been a sufficient lapse of time to suggest that a previous caution has had a "significant deterrent effect" then a caution can be administered, but it is at the discretion of the police and CPS. The lapse of time varies, in practice, between forces.
