Information on convictions for driving while intoxicated owing to alcohol or drugs for the drivers in the aforementioned table is not available. Information on convictions is provided by the Ministry of Justice. The data are not linked to personal injury road accident data.
The latest available information held on convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs by age groups from 2001-05 is provided in the table. 2006 data will be available later this year. The data provided cover both drink and drugs offences combined, as volumes of convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs separately cannot be accurately established.

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 and police forces. 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.

enable existing data sources, such as car mileage and fuel consumption, to be converted into illustrative carbon dioxide equivalent data. Using the guidelines to determine average carbon dioxide emissions per passenger km and converting to passenger mile produces the following results:
|Carbon dioxide emissions per passenger mile: (kg)|
For road, the factors used in the guidelines are estimated average values for the UK car fleet, travelling on average trips in the UK, per vehicle mile. This has been divided by an average car occupancy rate of 1.6 passengers to derive the average emissions per passenger mile figure given in the table.
For aviation, the emission factor is an aggregate representation of the typical emissions from illustrative types of aircraft for the three types of air services. Actual emissions will vary significantly according to the type of aircraft in use, the load, cabin class, etc. An uplift of 9 per cent. has been applied to account for non-direct routes, circling and congestion. This is in line with the evidence from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (1999).

RPA has made 22 manual payments to customers facing extreme difficulties based on a proportion of their estimated claim value. Seven of these customers have since had their claim validated and have received the remaining proportion of their payment.
Mr. Scott: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which farms in (a) Essex and (b) Suffolk are eligible for the single farm payment; and how much was paid in respect of those farms in each of the last three years for which figures are available.
