Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what (a) discussions she has had with and (b) representations she has received from the Essex police authority on the report on sustainable policing produced by the Association of Chief Police Officers and the Association of Police Authorities since July 2007; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information is collected by the police on the number of road accidents (a) caused by and (b) involving non-UK citizens; and if she will make a statement. 
Information on the number of reported personal injury road accidents involving or caused by non-UK citizens is not collected centrally. However, the Department for Transport does collect information on whether vehicles involved in a personal injury road accident are foreign registered. This information is published in table 53 in Road casualties Great Britain: the annual report 2006. Copies of the report have been deposited in the Libraries of the House. This table can also be found on the Departments website at the following address:
Mr. McNulty: My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary intends to introduce regulations in respect of the Police and Justice Act 2006 to give police authorities a greater role in the selection of their members, and reduce her own role. These regulations will also introduce measures to monitor appointments to ensure they are fair and transparent. The Mayor of London will also have an increased role under the regulations.
We also intend to introduce regulations to make police authority planning processes more efficient and streamlined and to ensure that police authorities (a) monitor the compliance of their forces with the Human Rights Act 1998 and with the authority's policing plan, (b) put in place arrangements that
secure collaboration between police forces where this would be in the interests of efficiency and effectiveness and (c) promote diversity and equality within forces and authorities.
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what pilots have been undertaken on the use by police of short-term holding facilities as an alternative to detention in police cells; and if she will make a statement. 
James Brokenshire: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people were (a) killed and (b) injured following police vehicle pursuits in each year since 1997, broken down by police force area. 
Mr. McNulty: The available data are for 2002-03 onwards and relate to road traffic collisions on public roads during immediate/emergency responses and police pursuit, and are given in the following tables.
In responding effectively to emergency situations the police must have due regard to the safety of other road users. The IPCC Report on their two-year review of road traffic incidents involving police vehicles which resulted in a fatality or serious injury was recently published (Police Road Traffic Incidents: A Study of Cases Involving Serious and Fatal Injuries http://www.ipcc.gov.uk/rti_report_11_9_07.pdf).
