Only one recruitment competition was held in 2007, hence the reduction in the number of applicants. In previous years, two competitions were held.
The reason the percentages quoted for Catholic and non-Catholic appointees are not exactly 50:50 when represented in this way, is that the 50:50 provisions are applied to each recruitment competition and not to each calendar year.
Mr. Dodds: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much was spent by the Police Service of Northern Ireland on equality and human rights training in each financial year since 2002-03; and what percentage this represented of the total training budget. 
Paul Goggins: Human Rights and Diversity training has been embedded across all aspects of the PSNI training programme. For example, all lessons delivered within the college would have been audited for human rights compliance and officers involved in firearms training would also receive twice yearly training on human rights. Therefore, a breakdown of costs for individual aspects of training courses is not readily accessible. To collate the figures would require a manual trawl of records and this could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Mr. Dodds: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many sex offenders were released on licence under Article 26 of the Criminal Justice (Northern Ireland) Order 1996 in each year since the legislation came into operation; and how many were (a) fined and (b) recalled to prison for breach of their licence conditions under Article 27 of that Order in each year. 
Paul Goggins: The information requested is set out in the following table. The first year that people were released under Article 26 was 2000.

Mr. Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many confirmed data security breaches there have been in his Department in the last 36 months; and what action was taken after each occurrence. 
Mr. Hain: I refer the hon. Members to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 21 November 2007, Official Report, column 1179. The review by the Cabinet Secretary and security experts is looking at procedures within Departments and agencies for the storage and use of data. A statement on Departments procedures will be made on completion of the review.
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will place in the Library a copy of the guidelines issued to staff maintaining his Departments and its agencies corporate identity; and what the estimated cost of (a) producing and (b) complying with such guidelines is. 
Mr. Hain: The Wales Office does not issue staff guidelines on corporate identity and subsequently does not incur costs against this.

These are derived from unitary local authority returns. These do not provide comparisons over the period requested, but only since 2003, and currently until 2005-06.
