Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the average (a) number of police in and (b) proportion of each police force employed in speed enforcement on roads was in each of the last five years. 
Mr. McNulty: The Home Office's collection of police personnel data by function does not separately identify those employed in speed enforcement.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police officers were seconded from Essex police to the Metropolitan police for counter-terrorism duties in each of the last 48 months. 
Mr. McNulty: Information collected centrally about the number of officers on secondment does not identify the force to which the officer is seconded.
John Cummings: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what constitutes an official identity photo document for a British subject who does not hold a passport or driving licence when demanded by certain airline carriers operating internal UK flights. 
Meg Hillier: The form of official identity photo documents required for domestic flights is a matter for individual airlines to define as there is no legal requirement to provide proof of identity for travel within the UK.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funding the Government has allocated for educational programmes in schools in 2007-08 aimed at tackling gun crime. 
Mr. Coaker: The Department for Children, Schools and Families will shortly be making available additional funding to accelerate the roll out of the extended schools programme in 12 local authorities where gun, gang and knife crime is most prevalent. This extra funding will be in addition to the £790 million given to local authorities during 2005-08 to fund the roll out of extended schools.
The Home Office also provides small grants to local community groups through the Connected Fund. Some of this work includes working with young people in schools on educational programmes on gun crime. In 2007-08, the Connected Fund has allocated a total of £500,000 to 100 local community projects.
Mr. Jeremy Browne: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to her written ministerial statement of 14 November 2007, Official Report, column 45WS, on protective security, if she will provide a copy of Lord Wests report to hon. and right hon. opposition Members. 
Mr. McNulty [holding answer 22 November 2007]: No. As my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary said in her written ministerial statement of 14 November 2007, Official Report, column 45WS, we do not intend to publish the report because we do not wish in any way to compromise our security.
James Brokenshire: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment she has made of the rollout of the Independent Sexual Violence Advisers scheme; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Coaker: Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (and Independent Domestic Violence Advisers) are currently being independently evaluated by Cardiff University and Wolverhampton University. This evaluation is being funded by the Home Office. The evaluators are planning to produce an interim report in December and a final report next summer. The Government will make a decision on the continued roll out of these Advisers based on this evaluation.
James Brokenshire: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) have been appointed since the commencement of the scheme; how many ISVAs remain in post; and in which areas they serve. 
Mr. Coaker: In total, 38 Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) were appointed in 2006-07. The following table gives the locations and catchment areas of the ISVA services.
At the end of 2006-07, ISVA services were asked to complete an assessment which included details of the recruitment and retention of ISVAs. As a result of this exercise, as far as we are aware all the ISVAs funded have remained in post.

Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Richmond, Southwark, Sutton, Wandsworth

Mr. Coaker: Following the £760,000 funding provided to develop 38 Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) services in 2006-07, the Government committed a further £760,000 in 2007-08 to sustain these services. In addition to this, just over £85,000 was allocated for accredited training for the role.
Budgets for 2008-09 are currently being worked up.
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many staff in her Department
are assigned to the monitoring and investigation of cults associated with terrorism; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. McNulty: The monitoring and investigation of groups concerned in terrorism are operational matters for the Security Service and the police. It would be inappropriate for me to comment further.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much was spent by each authority in Essex on combating terrorism in the borough in each of the last two years for which information is available. 
Mr. McNulty: The Home Office does not hold information relating to spending by each authority in Essex on combating terrorism.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) males and (b) females were (i) killed and (ii) injured in terrorist attacks in the UK in each year since 1990, broken down by age group. 
Mr. McNulty: Available information on persons killed relates to homicides recorded by police in England and Wales where the circumstance was attributed to acts of terrorism. Data for the period 1990 to 2005-06 are shown in the following tables. The figures do not include the deaths of alleged suspects who die during terrorist activity.
Injuries inflicted as a result of terrorist activity in England and Wales cannot be separately identified from the recorded crime datasets held by the Home Office. However, the Official Report into the 7 July London bombings states that an additional 700 persons were injured in the four attacks.
Statistics for Scotland and Northern Ireland are a matter for the respective Secretaries of State.
