Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many of his Departments personal digital assistants were (a) lost and (b) stolen in each of the last five years; and what the value of those items was. 
Maria Eagle: The Department does not have a comprehensive historical record of this information. Records held centrally show that one personal digital assistant was lost in 2003. The estimated value was approximately £100. There have been no reported thefts of personal digital assistants.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many Wikipedia entries have been (a) created and (b) amended (i) by (A) special advisers, (B) Ministers and (C) communications officials and (ii) from IP addresses of (1) special advisers, (2) Ministers and (3) communications officials in (x) his Department and its predecessor and (y) its agencies since August 2005. 
Maria Eagle: The information is not held centrally and could be provided only by contacting every member of staff in post in the areas requested during this period. The Ministry of Justices IT Systems are unable to provide a record of Wikipedia entries which have been created and amended by special advisers, Ministers and communications officials since August 2005.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many (a) non-EU citizens and (b) foreign nationals were convicted of (i) firearms and (ii) drug offences in Britain in each of the last 12 months. 
Maria Eagle: Information on the total number of foreign nationals convicted for firearms and drug offences are not held centrally. The central databases of criminal court cases collect information on defendants ethnicities, but do not presently contain information on their nationalities. This is because, as a general rule, nationality is not germane to the outcome of criminal court proceedings. Defendants will not be asked their nationality by the court for this reason. Information on nationality may be recorded where it is specifically relevant to the case (e.g. immigration-related offences) but this would be held on local files and would not be systematically recorded on central databases.
However, in preparation of the implementation of the UK Borders Act 2007, the Crown court IT systems are being changed to allow for the collection of nationality data. This Act introduces automaticrather than discretionarytriggers for the deportation of foreign nationals who meet certain sentencing criteria, and it will require more detailed recording of data on foreign national criminal defendants. Upgraded systems to meet this requirement are expected to be in place in late 2008.
Data held on the prison IT system do record the nationality of offenders. The following table gives the number of foreign national and EU national prisoners received into all prison establishments in England and Wales under immediate custodial sentences between 2004 and 2006.
The foreign nationals data are taken from table 7.5 of the Offender Management Caseload Statistics 2006.
Philip Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice who the members are of HM Prison Services Race Advisory Group; how much they are paid; what recommendations they have made; and which have been implemented as a result of such recommendations. 
Maria Eagle: There are 18 members of the Race Advisory Group (RAG), which was reconstituted during 2007. They include representatives of voluntary and community sector groups working in prisons, as well as managers from other large organisations and concerned and motivated individuals.
Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many judges are expected to be appointed in 2008; what steps he plans to take to promote diversity amongst the judiciary; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Straw: Appointments to judicial office are made by the Lord Chancellor following selection and recommendation by the Judicial Appointments Commission. The JAC puts forward its recommendations on the basis of requests from the Lord Chancellor to fill vacancies, the timing of which is determined by business need.
