Dawn Primarolo: The Young Potential project is a respected youth initiative primarily funded though local arrangements e.g. the Nottingham Local Strategic Partnership. Together with 26 other schemes, the project participated in the Department's funded three-year pilot Young People's Development Programme (YPDP). The intention of YPDP was always to embed the lessons learned into mainstream activity. YPDP has become recognised as meeting the needs of the new targeted youth support arrangements being taken forward by the Department for Children, Schools and Families. Over the last year, the National Youth Agency and the Department has supported the participant projects in making the case for funding for this aspect of work from their local authority areas, which is what we would now expect to happen.

Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of people arrested in the last 12 months had a DNA sample taken from them; and what factors are taken into account in deciding whether to take a DNA sample from an individual who has been arrested. 
Meg Hillier [holding answer 23 October 2007]: There is no current data available on the number of individuals who are arrested each year. Information on arrests published in the Statistical Bulletin Arrests for Recorded Crime (Notifiable Offences), is based on an arrest event i.e. a person will be counted more than once if arrested on more than one occasion during the year.
It is therefore not possible to compare the arrest data with data on the number of persons who have a DNA sample taken or the number of subject sample profiles added to the National DNA Database (NDNAD) or give a figure for the percentage of arrested persons who have a DNA sample taken.
Available data obtained from police forces in England and Wales indicate that over 673,000 persons had a DNA sample taken in 2006-07 and 667,737 DMA subject sample profiles were loaded to the National DNA Database. This would represent around 576,250 individuals, taking account of the estimated subject sample profile replication rate which is currently 13.7 per cent.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has produced guidance for police officers on the use of DNA. The guidance states that a DNA sample should be taken from anyone who is detained at a police station and has been arrested for a recordable offence and:
who is a new offender and therefore does not have a PNC record or who does not already have a DNA profile on the National DNA Database; and
who has not had a DNA sample same taken during the course of the investigation.

Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) Iraqi, (b) Afghan and (c) Somali nationals have been waiting for determination of an application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK for more than (i) six, (ii) 12 and (iii) 24 months; and if he will make a statement.

|6 to < 12 months||12 to < 24 months||24 months and over|
|(1) Figures are rounded to the nearest 25.|

The data is not provided under National Statistic protocols. It has been derived from local management information and is therefore provisional subject to change.
