To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what departmental assets are
planned to be sold in each financial year from 2007-08 to 2010-11; what the (a) description and (b) book value of each such asset is; and what the expected revenue from each such sale is. 
Mr. Byrne: The Home Office has firm plans to dispose of two properties over the period 2007-08 to 2010-11. These are both police training facilities belonging to the National Police Improvement Agency. Bruche in Warrington has a book value of £6.8 million and Ashford in Kent has a book value of £9.4 million.
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will place in the Library a breakdown of the Department's efficiency savings in relation to its Spending Review 2004 (SR04) targets, including (a) the efficiency projects in the Department, (b) the date on which they were initiated and (c) how much each was predicted to contribute to the SR04 target. 
Mr. Byrne: The 2007 Departmental Annual Report (Cm 7096) set out the Home Office's performance in relation to the 2004 Spending Review target to increase value for money which was met 15 months early. It reported that the Department had achieved gains worth £2,352 million, of which £1,530 million is cashable against a target of £1,970 million, of which £1,240 million is to be cashable. Further progress will be published in the 2007 Autumn Performance Report.
describes the breakdown and calculation method of projects that contribute to the overall target for Home Office value for money. A recent report by the Committee of Public Accounts (HC349) commented on the robustness of the Department's approach to measurement, particularly in relation to those savings arising from reduction in the cost of providing asylum support.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which advertising and marketing campaigns were run by (a) his Department and (b) its agencies in each of the last five years; which external agencies were involved; and what the cost was of each campaign. 
Government policies and programmes affect the lives of millions of people and in order for them to work they must be communicated effectively. But that also has to be done with cost efficiency in mind and there are strict rules to ensure value for money on Government advertising.
