Mr. McFadden: Government funding will support strategic changes to the post office network with up to 2,500 compensated closures nationally within a framework of minimum access criteria. These closures are being offset by the introduction of 500 new outreach services.
Mr. Roger Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many post offices considered for closure will not be closed; and how many of these have been substituted with another post office to be closed. 
John Battle: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what annual cash savings the Post Office expects to make from the closure of post offices in (a) Leeds West constituency and (b) Leeds Metropolitan District. 
Mr. Pickles: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform who is responsible for funding the (a) e-government regional partnerships and (b) regional equality and diversity partnerships. 
Mr. McFadden: The regional e-government partnerships were self-organised with the help of £300,000 each up to March 2006 of seed-corn funding from ODPM as part of the Local e-Government Programme, and supported by regional LGA groups. Since March 2006 they have been self-funded within each region by public and private members via a subscription- and events-based model.
The regional equality and diversity partnerships have been formed in a number of regions and are funded by a range of organisations, both public (including regional development agencies, regional assemblies, local authorities and the Big Lottery Fund) and private (including business, trade associations and trade unions).
Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how much the regional development agencies spent on tourism in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. McFadden: The following figures refer to spending by RDAs on core tourism and leisure objectives. RDAs have also spent money on activities related to tourism initiatives such as general marketing of a region; specific regeneration projects; or human resource development. The cost of these related activities are not included in the table.
|Expenditure on tourism|
|(1) AWM had no specific budget for tourism in 2003-04 over and above AWMs marketing activities for general inward investment into the region.|
(2) EEDAs business model for tourism changed significantly over the this three-year period, resulting in the increased level of investment for 2006-07.
(3) LDA figures include core funding to Visit London. London is recognised by the UK tourism industry as supporting the success of other UK destinations through its gateway role and Visit London plays an important delivery role in promoting London as a gateway to the rest of the UK.
(4) ONE took over the delivery of tourism in 2004-05, which is delivered from within the agency.
Shona McIsaac: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) acceptable behaviour contracts and (b) antisocial behaviour orders were issued in Cleethorpes constituency in each of the last five years. 
Mr. Coaker: Data on acceptable behaviour contracts (ABCs) are not collected by the Home Office as they are voluntary agreements and therefore not suitable for central data collection. However, surveys carried out by the Home Office of the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) indicated that over 280 ABCs have been made in Lincolnshire since October 2003.
Information on the number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued is not collected centrally at parliamentary constituency area level. The number of ASBOs issued in the Lincolnshire Criminal Justice System (CJS) area from January 2002 to December 2006 (latest available) is shown in the following table. CJS areas are coterminous with police force areas.

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 data 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.
Prepared by CJEAU, Ministry of Justice.
Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people aged (a) under 10, (b) 10 to 17, (c) 18 to 20 and (d) 21 years and over were (i) arrested, (ii) charged and (iii) convicted for (A) violent and (B) non-violent offences in each of the last five years. 
The number of persons proceeded against at magistrates courts and found guilty at all courts for
violent and non-violent offences in England and Wales, broken down by age group for the years 2002 to 2006 is shown in the following table.
These data are on the principal offence basis: the figures given in the table on court proceedings relate to persons for whom these offences were the principal offence for which they were dealt with. When a defendant has been found guilty of two or more offences, the offence selected is the one for which the heaviest penalty is imposed. Where the same disposal is imposed for two or more offences, the offence selected is the offence for which the statutory maximum penalty is the most severe.
The available information held by the Ministry of Justice on number of persons arrested is given in the other table from 2001-02 to 2005-06 (latest available). There is no link from these centrally reported data to any subsequent outcome.
