Barbara Follett: The information in the following table represents expenditure incurred by the Department's Library and Information Centre on subscriptions for hard copy and online magazines, newspapers, books and other publications, access to specific research databases, the Stationery Office and other parliamentary information sources as well as legal online and hard copy updating services.
The 2008-09 figures have yet to be audited and are therefore subject to change.
Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many education visits to English Heritage properties in respect for which free admission was granted there were in each of the last five years. 
|(1) Programme launched|
Admission for educational groups to English Heritage sites is always free. If, in addition to their visit, schools wish to book a special facilitated discovery visit, a charge of £60 is made towards the teaching costs of these sessions.
The introduction of discovery visits was one of a range of responses made by English Heritage to pressures which have resulted in a gradual reduction in the number of education visits being made to its sites. Other responses have included free downloadable learning resources, support for teachers making risk assessments, and investment in new and improved education spaces at, for example, Lullingstone Roman Villa, Battle Abbey, Down House and Audley End.
Mr. Andrew Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will review the number of temporary event notices for which licensed premises can apply; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Pickles: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether his Department has provided guidance to licensing authorities on the use of ID Clubscan scanners in licensed premises as a condition of entry into the premises. 
Lynne Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what information his Department has gathered on the effect of its policies and practices on the recruitment, development and retention of employees with mental illnesses within (a) his Department and (b) the public sector bodies for which he has responsibility; and what use has been made of that information. 
Under the disability equality duty introduced by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005, DCMS and our public sector bodies listed in the associated Regulations are required to publish and implement
disability equality schemes. These are plans setting out how we will carry out the disability equality duty, monitor and report on progress. In particular this includes our arrangements for gathering information on the effect of our policies and practices on the recruitment, development and retention of disabled employees, including those with mental health conditions, and making use of that information.
In addition, and in line with the disability equality duty, a report is published every three years to show: progress towards disability equality in my policy sector; and proposals for co-ordination of future work by relevant public bodies within my policy sector. These reports will show what impact, if any, policies have had on recruitment and retention of disabled people including those with a mental health condition, and set out proposals to address any gaps identified when establishing the progress made across the policy sector. The first report will be published by December 2008.

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what recent assessment Visit Britain has made of the impact of legislation and regulation on the tourism industry; and if he will make a statement. 
Barbara Follett: VisitBritain has made no recent assessment of the impact of legislation and regulation on the tourism industry. Through the annual simplification plan process, the Government are taking action to reduce unnecessary administrative burdens on business arising from legislation. Any new legislation must go through a separate impact assessment process which considers the costs and benefits of the proposed regulation. DCMS will continue to liaise with the tourism and hospitality industry on better regulation matters.
