The Next Steps Report 1997 (Cm3889) provides information on all executive agencies as at 31 December 1997. Copies are available from the Library of the House. The most up-to-date list of executive agencies is published in the Cabinet Office publication
The List of Ministerial Responsibilities. The latest version, incorporating recent ministerial changes, will be published shortly. Copies will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
Mr. David Anderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what steps he is taking to ensure that employers act upon the decisions of employment tribunals regarding monetary awards to claimants. 
Bridget Prentice: There are provisions in the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 to simplify the current system for enforcing unpaid employment tribunal awards in the county court. Once implemented these provisions will allow the applicant to go straight to enforcement rather than through registration at a county court. Additionally, for the first time, the award will be registered on the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines. Inclusion on this register, which is often consulted by banks, building societies and credit companies when considering applications for credit, may make it more difficult for defaulters to obtain credit and therefore provides an incentive to pay the sum due. This provision will ease the burden on the recipients of tribunal awards and it is intended to implement this provision in April 2009.
Mr. Moss: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether there has been a Prison Officers' Association staff vote of no confidence in the Governor of HMP Whitemoor in the last three months. 
Mr. Prisk: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much was claimed in expenses for taxi travel by officials from (a) his Department and (b) its executive agencies in (i) 2006-07, (ii) 2005-06, (iii) 2004-05, (iv) 2003-04 and (v) 2002-03; and if he will make a statement. 
It is not possible to determine how much was spent on taxis in the last five years, as the expenditure is not separately identifiable within the Department's financial systems. This information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
