22 Oct 2008 : Column 348Wcontinued
Jo Swinson: To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission pursuant to the answer of 13 October 2008, Official Report, column 858W, on Official Report, what the average cost was of making all the forms of the Official Report available in printed form per sitting day in the 10 financial years before 2007-08. 
Nick Harvey: The financial information required to calculate figures for the whole period requested has not been retained. The average costs, to the nearest £1,000 in cash terms, for previous financial years for which information is available are as follows:
|Average cost (£)|
Chris Huhne: To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission how many House of Commons security passes have been reported (a) lost and (b) stolen in each year since 2001. 
Nick Harvey: The following table captures the available data on passes reported lost and stolen:
|October to December 2007||January to October 2008|
These data have been taken from the new pass system introduced in summer 2007. Data prior to October 2007 are in an old software system, not easily accessible at present. Work is under way to try and make the old system compatible with the new so that historic information can be easily retrieved.
As I told the right hon. Member for Horsham (Mr. Maude) on 8 July 2008, Official Report, column 1453W, the number of parliamentary photo-identity passes that had been lost or stolen in the 24 months leading up to June 2008 was 31 and that 313 had been reported missing over the past nine years.
Gregory Barker: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what the Governments policy is on whether the EU should reduce emissions by 30 per cent. against 1990 levels if an international agreement on climate change is reached. 
Joan Ruddock: As and when a comprehensive international agreement on climate change is reached, the EU (and the Government) is committed to reducing EU greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent. against 1990 levels. The Government believe that a quick and transparent process for scaling up the EU emissions reduction target from 20-30 per cent. in the event of such an international commitment is essential.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many citizens' juries her Department has held since 1 July 2007; what the cost was of each; what was discussed at each event; and how many (a) Ministers and (b) members of the public attended each event. 
Hazel Blears: In December 2007 Communities and Local Government held two citizens' juries jointly with the Department for Innovation Universities and Skills, in London and in Hull, to discuss how targeted provision of teaching English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) can help build community cohesion. The events cost £69,965 split equally between CLG and DIUS. I attended the jury in London on behalf of CLG and my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Bill Rammell) attended on behalf of DIUS. 17 members of the public attended in Hull and 18 in London.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many security passes have been reported (a) lost and (b) stolen by staff in (i) her Department and its predecessors and (ii) agencies sponsored by her Department in each year since 2001. 
Mr. Khan: DCLG was formed on 5 May 2006 and this reply also relates to its predecessor, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. However, records for security passes reported as (a) lost and (b) stolen in the London HQ buildings are not available before 2005.

The Government office for west midlands reissued all of their passes on 1 January 2008. No records have been retained about losses up to that date.
