Court proceedings data held by RDSOffice for Criminal Justice ReformMinistry of Justice
Mr. Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what severity limits distinguish between (a) mild and moderate and (b) moderate and substantial under the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986; and whether (i) duration and (ii) intensity of suffering are taken into account. 
Meg Hillier: Mild protocols are those that at worst give rise to slight or transitory minor adverse effects. Substantial protocols are those that may result in a major departure from the animal's usual state of health or well being. Moderate protocols can best be defined as those that fall between mild and substantial.
Severity limits cannot be determined by a single adverse effect. Professional judgment is required to consider and weigh all the expected adverse effects before assessing the appropriate severity limit. The duration and intensity of the suffering are always taken into account. Further details of the criteria used to assign severity limits to regulated procedures are set out in paragraphs 5.40 to 5.49 of the Guidance on the Operation of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (HC321). Copies of the guidance have been placed in the House Library.
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many and what proportion of people served with (a) antisocial behaviour orders and (b) parental control orders have re-offended within two years since each was introduced. 
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much was spent on the website www.respect.gov.uk in each month since its inception; what the budget for the website is for 2008-09; how many staff are employed to maintain the website; and how many unique visitors there were to the website in each month since its inception. 
Mr. Coaker: The antisocial behaviour Respect website www.respect.gov.uk began in October 2006. In 2006-07, the expenditure on the website was £73,000 and in 2007-08 it was £118,000. The 2008-09 budget for the website is currently under review. The website is run on behalf of the Home Office by Broadcasting Support Services (BSS) who employ one member of staff to maintain the content on the website.
|Monthly breakdown of unique visitors to the Respect Website|
Meg Hillier: It is estimated that over the period April 1998 to March 2007, there have been approximately 240,000 detections in which a DNA match was available and/or played a part in solving the crime. A breakdown of this figure by year is given in the following table. Figures for the 2007-08 financial year are not yet available.
|Number of detections in which a DNA match was available or played a part April 1998 to March 2007|
|Detected crimes in which a DNA match was available||Additional detections arising from DNA match( 1)||Total detected crimes in which a DNA match was available or played a part|
|n/a = Not available. (1) Additional detections may result from the original crime with the DNA match due to the identification of further offences through forensic linkage or through admission by the offender. On average, each crime detected in which a DNA match was available now results in a further 1.06 crimes being detected.|
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many crimes of violence against the person were recorded in Bury St Edmunds constituency in each of the last five years. 
Mr. Coaker: Statistics are not collected specifically on a constituency basis. The Home Office does publish statistics at Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) area level. The number of offences of violence against the person for each of the last five years by CDRP is available on the Home Office website at:
Also available is a look-up table that identifies which constituencies are associated with CDRPs. In many instances, a CDRP may comprise of more than one constituency. Conversely, some constituencies will come within two or more CDRPs, either wholly or partially. The look-up table is available at:
Rob Marris: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether (a) her Department and (b) her Departments non-departmental public bodies provide (i) tax-free benefits and (ii) other allowances for their staff to purchase bicycles under the Cycle to Work scheme; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Byrne: Neither the Department nor its executive non-departmental public bodies (the Independent Police Complaints Commission, the National Policing Improvement Agency, the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner, and the Security Industry Authority) offer a Cycle to Work scheme to their employees.
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers were fined for speeding in (a) England and Wales and (b) each police force area in each year since 1997; and how much was paid in fines for speeding in each area in each year. 
Mr. Drew: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what her policy is on the extradition to Equatorial Guinea of people suspected of the participation in the attempted coup in that country. 
There are no general extradition arrangements in place between the United Kingdom and Equatorial Guinea. Where there are no such arrangements, the Extradition Act 2003 contains certain specific provisions whereby, in appropriate cases, ad hoc international arrangements may be entered into under which the possibility of extradition would then fall to be considered.
Mr. Gummer: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been extradited from the UK to the US to face charges for activities which would not be a criminal matter in the UK in the last three years. 
Meg Hillier: None. The 2003 UK-US extradition treaty stipulates that an offence shall be an extradition offence if the conduct on which the offence is based is punishable under the laws of both states by deprivation of liberty for a period of one year or a more severe penalty. This is reflected in our domestic law. This means no-one can be extradited from one jurisdiction to the other for conduct that is not criminalised in both countries.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) illegal immigrants and (b) failed asylum seekers detained by the police have absconded en route to immigration detention or removal centres in each of the last five years.
