Mr. Dodds: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland which district policing partnerships did not meet the key performance indicator targets set by the Policing Board in 2006-07; and by how much they missed each target. 
Paul Goggins: For the 2006-07 reporting period, District Policing Partnerships (DPPs) carried out a self-assessment of their effectiveness against the targets set out in the DPP Monitoring Framework. The targets for DPPs reflect their statutory functions, as set out in the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000. I will write to the hon. Gentleman with details of those DPPs that did not achieve set targets. The Northern Ireland Policing Board recognises the importance of DPP effectiveness and was pleased that the 2006-07 assessment found the majority of targets set were met by most DPPs. The Board reviewed the performance management system for DPPs, and introduced a new effectiveness framework in April 2008.
Robert Neill: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what recent assessment he has made of the changes in the levels of electoral fraud in Northern Ireland as a result of the introduction of individual electoral registration. 
Paul Goggins: The Electoral Fraud (Northern Ireland) Act 2002 introduced a number of measuresincluding individual registrationto address the perception of electoral fraud, which was seen to be undermining the democratic process in Northern Ireland. Both the Electoral Commission and the Chief Electoral Officer for Northern Ireland believe that since these measures were introduced the potential for fraud has been reduced and confidence has been largely restored. Successive Electoral Commission reports have affirmed this.

Paul Goggins: The Northern Ireland Office does not separately record the amount of expenditure on refreshments for official departmental meetings and engagements, nor do we record the amount spent on Fairtrade goods.
Mr. Hayes: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many working days have been lost due to industrial action by employees for which his Department is responsible in each year since 1997. 
Paul Goggins: The information held within the Northern Ireland Office relates only to days lost due to industrial action by current staff. Staff who have left the Department or transferred out of the Department are not included in the figures and so we are unable to provide total figures for days lost due to industrial action.
