Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will review salary negotiations for public-sector employees in organisations within her Department's responsibility to reflect the rise in the consumer prices index to a point above 3 per cent. 
Public sector pay settlements should be consistent with maintaining the necessary levels of recruitment, retention and staff engagement needed to support service delivery; ensuring that total pay bills represent value for money and are affordable within Departments' overall expenditure plans; and consistent with the achievement of the inflation target. Timing of pay decisions for a particular work force depends on pay-setting arrangements for that work force.
Mr. Byrne: Since 1999, the Government have published the total cost of all overseas travel by Ministers and a list of all overseas travel by Cabinet Ministers costing over £500. Information for the last financial year was published on 25 July 2007, Official Report, column 1112W. Details for the financial year 2007-08 will be published before the summer recess and will include details of overseas visits undertaken by all Ministers. All ministerial travel is undertaken in accordance with the Ministerial Code.
Mr. Byrne [holding answer 20 June 2008]: Information prior to April 2006 is not available owing to known data quality issues. The UK Border Agency deported or removed over 4,200 foreign national prisoners in 2007, 525 of whom were European economic area nationals.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what her policy is on the deportation to Zimbabwe of (a) members of the Movement for Democratic Change and (b) those with strong links to the Movement for Democratic Change. 
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) breathalyser and (b) drug tests were carried out on drivers in each police force in each of the last three calendar years for which figures are available. 
Mr. Coaker: Data held by the Ministry of Justice relate only to the number of screening breath tests taken for alcohol and the number positive or refused. The available information is given in the following table. Information is not collected centrally on subsequent evidential tests for alcohol.
Tests for drug driving can only be taken using a device of a type approved by the Secretary of State. No type-approved devices are yet available. Figures are not collected centrally on the tests which police carry out for impairment which may be due to a drug. These tests do not involve the use of specialist equipment.

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 these data are used.
