Mr. Jeremy Browne: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many (a) parking tickets and (b) speeding fines were issued for vehicles used by his Department in each of the last 10 years; and what the cost to the public purse of those penalties was in each year. 
Information relating to the exact number of tickets issued during each year is not held centrally and could
be provided only at disproportionate cost. The following table provides figures for parking fines paid by our agent from 1999 to date.
The Ministry or its agents have paid no speeding fines. When a fixed penalty notice (or notice of impending prosecution) is received it is returned to the issuing authority with the drivers name and address. A central record is not kept of these occurrences.
Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many (a) imprisonable and (b) non-imprisonable driving offences were committed by holders of European driving licences in the latest period for which figures are available. 
Maria Eagle: Breaches of road traffic legislations can be dealt with by written warnings (including formal cautions), fixed penalty notices and court proceedings. The data held centrally by my Department on these actions are unable to distinguish offences committed by foreign licence holders.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what percentage of offenders who were tried in a specialist domestic violence court received (a) bail, (b) fines and (c) non-custodial sentences in the last period for which figures are available. 
There is no specific data available on court bail decisions for those defendants appearing in the Specialist Domestic Violence Courts. As data are
only collected on sentence on such cases at a local level where required to assist in implementation and maintenance of the model, a complete sentencing data set is not available.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many complaints of (a) sexual harassment and (b) sexual discrimination have been made by staff in (i) his Department and (ii) its agencies in the most recent year for which figures are available.

In the ex-DCA complaints on the grounds of sexual harassment are recorded with other types of complaint under the general heading of conduct. The system for logging complaints does not provide a separate category for sexual harassment, and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
The public sector Prison Service does not have systems in place that hold centrally validated information in respect of complaints of sexual harassment or discrimination and it could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
The Service recognises that sexual harassment is a serious issue and has agreed a series of actions to identify and address sexual harassment. One of the primary actions required under the agreement with EHRC is to review all complaints which have occurred in establishments from 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2006. This information is currently the subject to quality controls and validation.
Mr. Greg Knight: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what plans he has to bring forward a Statute Law (Repeals) Bill in this session in response to the recent report from the Law Commission.
