Mr. Newmark: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many successful prosecutions under section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, as amended, were undertaken in each of the last three years against owners or drivers of vehicles judged to have tinted windows which failed to meet the relevant visual light transmission standard imposed by Regulation 32 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986; 
(2) how many prosecutions under section 77 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, as amended, have been undertaken in each of the last three years as a consequence of vehicles being offered for sale which failed to adhere to the relevant visual light transmission standard imposed by Regulation 32 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986; 
(3) how many prosecutions under section 76 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, as amended, have been undertaken as a consequence of vehicles being fitted with window tint which fails to comply with the relevant visual light transmission standard imposed by Regulation 32 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 in each of the last three years. 
Maria Eagle: Available information held centrally on prosecutions does not separately identify offences under ss. 42, 77 and 76 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, as amended, where defendants fail to meet standards imposed by Regulation 32 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986. The offences are grouped together with other offences within the category 'vehicles or parts in dangerous or defective condition'.
Annette Brooke: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on the housing of young offenders when they have completed their sentences. 
Mr. Hanson: The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and I agreed the set of national indicators for local authorities and the inclusion of (among other indicators) an indicator on young offenders' access to suitable accommodation. That indicator now forms part of the single set of national indicators.
The project will examine current and emerging trends in the production and consumption of food, the key drivers of those trends and the implications for the wider economy, society and the environment. It will look at the opportunities and challenges facing the food system, including issues such as the contribution of diet to public health, food safety, changing consumer tastes and preferences, and environmental sustainability. In the first instance, the focus of the work will be analytical rather than policy focused but later phases are expected to draw out wider policy implications.
Norman Baker: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what assessment he has made of the variability of the quality and depth of public services available in particular areas as a result of the relative strength of third sector organisations in those areas. 
Phil Hope: The third sector review was an in-depth assessment of the role of the sector in economic and social regeneration. In terms of public service delivery the Government have undertaken, through the partnership in public services action plan, to remove barriers that third sector organisations experience when bidding to supply public services. It will be for local commissioners to decide on whether particular organisations, whether public, private or third sector, will provide best value and quality of those services.
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many academies have been (a) established, (b) agreed but yet to open and (c) proposed in each local education authority; and how many were for the age group (i) 11 to 16 and (ii) 11 to 18 years in each case. 
Jim Knight: There are now 83 academies open in 49 local authorities. There are 12 projects in the implementation phase, and a further 69 projects where the Secretary of State has agreed a formal expression of interest with the local authority and a sponsor for an academy. Details are given in the following table which also indicates how many academies are catering for, or are proposed to cater for, the 11-16 and 11-18 age groups.
