Data showing the number of PNDs issued for such offences to persons aged 16 and over, in England and Wales, 2004 to 2006, are shown in the following table.

Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what proportion of prisoners held at HMP Peterborough are (a) British citizens, (b) EEA citizens and (c) non-EEA citizens; and if he will make a statement. 
As at 30 September 2008, 81 per cent. of the prisoners at HMP Peterborough were UK nationals, 6 per cent. were EEA nationals and 10 per cent. were non-EEA nationals. There were a further 3 per cent. whose nationality was not yet recorded. Although nationality may not yet be recorded in certain instances, this is not indicative of where nationality is unknown. Relevant checks with other Government Departments will be conducted as appropriate in order to ascertain further details.
Mr. Pickles: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 10 March 2008, Official Report, columns 157-58W, on powers of entry: debt collection, what the latest timetable is for (a) further consultation and (b) the implementation of new powers for bailiffs; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the completed scoping exercise. 
Bridget Prentice: Following Royal Assent in July 2007, a scoping exercise which involved a series of meetings with stakeholders to discuss implementation was undertaken. The options for implementing the enforcement provisions within the Act are, at present, being considered and an announcement will be made in the next few months. A statement will be placed in the Library.
David Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what assessment he has made of the effects of the Prison Service's ruling that prison inmates may not be employed by outside employers on the situation of prisoners in open prisons who are employed by outside employers while subject to Prison Rules. 
Mr. Hanson: Prisoners who are employed in partnership with private industry or any other third party to carry out work while in prison are not directly employed by the organisations involved. This enables the governor to rightly retain primacy on prison control and prisoner management issues.
Mr. Hanson: The table shows the total number of women prisoners with a home address in Wales held in prison, and the establishments at which they were held for September 2005-08. Information is not available for 1 April each year or for September 2004.
