Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice on what date each IT system or systems replacing those that are redundant or not fit for purpose within the GNOMIS system will be operational; and how much each replacement or adapted system is expected to cost. 
Mr. Hanson: There are no redundant or not fit for purpose IT systems or systems within the NOMIS programme. GNOMIS is not a name recognised within the programme. C-NOMIS is now going to be limited to use within HMPS, rather than also including use within NPS. This has had minimal impact on the C-NOMIS software requirements. Commercial negotiations for this programme are on-going; therefore we are currently unable to reveal detailed costings of the individual elements of the overall programme.
Following on from commercial negotiations, detailed and assured delivery plans that reflect the new approach and ensure constituent projects are delivered effectively to prisons and probation areas will be available from the spring.
Mr. Malins: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many persons in Surrey were (a) convicted for speeding and (b) received a fixed penalty for speeding in each of the last five years for which figures are available; 
|Fixed penalty notices issued( 1) , findings of guilt at all courts for speeding( 2) and driving etc. after consuming alcohol or taking drugs( 3) within Surrey police force area, 2001 to 2005|
|(1) Only covers notices paid where there is no further action.|
(2) Offences under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and the Motor Vehicles (Speed Limits on Motorways) Regs 1973.
(3) Data cover summary offences of driving etc. after consuming alcohol or taking drugs (which cannot reliably be distinguished separately).
(4) The Court Proceedings database from which this figure is derived only hold 344 prosecutions in 2004 for this offence.
(5) Safety Camera Partnership went live in the force area on 1 April 2005.
1. It is known that for some police force areas, the reporting of court proceedings in particular summary motoring offences, is less than complete.
2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative systems generated by the courts. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
Mr. Malins: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the re-offending rate was for offenders given a drug rehabilitation requirement by the courts in the most recent period for which figures are available. 
Mr. Hanson: Community orders were introduced for adult offenders in April 2005. The currently published statistics on re-offending do not include data on community orders (of which one possible requirement is the drug rehabilitation requirement). Re-offending data on community orders will be published for the first time in summer 2008. This publication will be based on offenders discharged from prison or commencing community orders in the first quarter of 2006.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether he intends to pilot the use of individual electoral registration in (a) Peterborough city council and (b) any other English local authority in May 2008 or thereafter; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Wills: The Representation of the People Act 2000 does not allow local authorities to pilot changes to registration. The legislation provides for three different types of pilot scheme: (a) when, where and how voting at the elections is to take place; (b) how the votes cast at the elections are to be counted; and (c) the sending by candidates of election communications free of charge for postage.
On 7 January, I confirmed in a response to a parliamentary question from the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) that there is no intention to undertake further electoral innovation pilot schemes in 2008.
Imposing a new duty on Electoral Registration Officers to take all necessary steps to ensure a comprehensive register;
Increasing the time available for registration by enabling people to register up to 11 days before the election; and
Introducing performance standards for Electoral Registration Officers. Electoral registration indicators were launched by the Electoral Commission during December 2007.
Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many defendants have been remanded on bail while subject to electronically-monitored curfew (a) before and (b) after conviction in each of the last seven years for which figures are available. 
Mr. Hanson: The following table sets out the number of separate occasions on which courts imposed an electronically monitored curfew requirement as a condition of bail in each of the last seven financial years in England and Wales. The figures have been provided by the two electronic monitoring suppliers, G4S and SERCO.
|Financial year||Total number of times courts imposed a curfew with electronic monitoring as a bail condition|
|(1) Year of introduction. (2 )April to December 2007.|
The caseload for tagging on bail has increased significantly after September 2005, when the Home Office advised the courts of the availability of curfew monitoring for adult defendants under the Bail Act 1976.
Mr. Straw: The review of the organisation to my Department, following the creation of the Ministry of Justice and then the Carter Report, is continuing. I will inform Parliament of the findings when the work of the review is complete.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many non-UK prisoners were returned to serve their sentence in (a) EU and (b) non-EU home countries in each year since 1997; which 10 non-EU countries received the most prisoners in that period; and how many of those returned to non-EU countries did not have leave to remain in the UK. 
Mr. Hanson: The number of prisoners returned to EU and non-EU home countries in each year since 2003 is given in the following tables. Figures for years prior to 2003 are not available. Nine non-EU countries have had prisoners repatriated to them since 2003. The figures are given in table 2.
