Angela Eagle: For information on alcohol spending I refer to the answer I gave to the hon. Member on 31 March 2008, Official Report, column 629W. The amounts spent on official entertainment for the period May to July 2008 were as follows: HM Treasury £5,832, Debt Management Office £9,000, Office of Government Commerce £529 and OGCbuying.solutions £330. All spending on official entertainment is made in accordance with published departmental guidance on financial procedures and propriety, based on principles set out in Managing Public Money.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the evidential basis is for his analysis of the state of the economy contained in his interview published in T he Guardian newspaper on 30 August 2008. 
Mr. Peter Ainsworth: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the revenue that would accrue to his Department annually as a result of auctioning (a) seven per cent. and (b) 10 per cent. of allowances under Phase II of the Emissions Trading Scheme; and if he will make a statement. 
Angela Eagle: In Phase II of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, which runs from 2008 to 2012, Government will auction 7 per cent. of allowances. This equates to approximately 85 million allowances, plus those allowances from installations that close during Phase II and any unused surplus from the New Entrant Reserve (NER). The total amount cannot exceed 10 per cent. of the number allocated during Phase II according to the terms of the EU ETS Directive 2003/87/EC. The amount of revenue will be influenced by the market price of carbon at the time of the auctions. The Government do not comment on carbon price, as it would be improper for Government to speculate on how the market will function in the future. Therefore, an estimate on the amount of revenue the auctions will raise cannot be given.

support of the Minister of State with responsibility for revenue protection at the UK border; 
Mr. Byrne [holding answer 10 September 2008]: In my capacity as a member of the ministerial team at the Treasury, I have access to office facilities whenever I require them at the Treasury, and support from a wide range of administrative and policy officials, from both HM Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs. The number of officials supporting me varies according to the nature of the work at any particular time.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what events the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill has attended in his capacity as Minister of State with responsibility for revenue protection at the UK border since his appointment to that post. 
Mr. Byrne [holding answer 10 September 2008]: I have attended numerous events in connection with the UK Border Agency since I took up my Treasury post in January 2008. I attend these events in both my capacity as Minister of State for Borders and Immigration and my capacity as Minister of State with responsibility for revenue protection at the border.
Justine Greening: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many vehicles were exempted from vehicle excise duty in the disabled tax class as a result of (a) disability living allowance and (b) war pensioners mobility supplement in each year from 2002; and how many were exempted because they fell within the disabled passenger vehicle taxation class in each such year. 
Angela Eagle: The Treasury does not hold historical figures for the requested categories. At the end of March 2008, there were a total of 1,141,747 vehicles exempted from vehicle excise duty as a result of their owners being eligible for the higher rate of the mobility component of disability living allowance and the war pensioners mobility supplement. At the same time, 17,105 vehicles were exempt from VED as a result of their falling within the disabled passenger carrying vehicle class.
