offences under sections 2 or 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 in each of the last 10 years. 
Maria Eagle: Information on drivers charged with motoring offences is not collected centrally. The court proceedings database held by my Department identifies proceedings under sections 2 and 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. However, the nationality of those proceeded against does not form part of that information.

Fiona Mactaggart: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many prisoners have been segregated under Rule 43 conditions in HM Prison Frankland since April 2007; and how long the period of segregation has been in each case. 
Maria Eagle: It is assumed that my hon. Friend is referring to Rule 45, which replaced Rule 43 in 1999. The following table shows the number of prisoners who are recorded as having commenced a period of detention in the segregation unit at Frankland on or after 1 April 2007 up to 15 November 2007.

Andrew George: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what percentage of freedom of information requests to his Department have been replied to within 20 days; what the greatest length of time taken to issue a reply has been; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Wills: My Department publishes a quarterly report of statistics on Freedom of Information implementation in central Government. According to the most recent report, detailing performance in the second quarter of 2007, 73 per cent. of requests to the Ministry of Justice were answered within the statutory deadline of 20 working days. Overall 91 per cent. of requests to the Ministry were answered in time, meaning within the statutory deadline or within a permitted extension. To determine the greatest length of time taken to respond to a request would incur disproportionate cost.
Mr. Wills: The UK Government and the devolved administrations are committed, wherever possible, to conducting business through normal administrative channels, at either official or ministerial level. The JMC has met regularly in functional formats to discuss matters of mutual interest to the UK Government and the devolved Administrations. The UK Government are considering when it would be appropriate for a meeting of the JMC in plenary session to take place.
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many Legal Services Commission matter starts were given for (a) welfare benefit, (b) housing, (c) employment, (d) debt, (e) immigration, (f) community care and (g) family law cases in Slough in
each of the last five years; and how many are being offered in the current bid rounds. 
Maria Eagle: The figures for new matter starts for Slough over the last three years are shown in the following table. Data for 2003-04 or 2002-03 are not available. Within these new matter starts, we are specifically looking to target Slough with community care, employment and welfare benefits, as there is no category specific contract in these areas of law in Slough at present.
