(3) what the total monetary value of compensation orders issued by the courts was in each of the last five
years for which figures are available; and what percentage of this was collected by the courts and awarded to victims in each of the last five years for which figures are available. 
Bridget Prentice: The available information shown in the following table shows the total number of compensation orders imposed, the average amount of those compensation orders and the total monetary value of those compensation orders in each of the last five years. Centrally held data do not cover the percentage of these orders that were subsequently collected.

|(1) These data are not based on a primary disposal basis, a court can order to pay an offender to pay compensation alongside another, e.g. as well as receiving a community sentence an offender could be ordered to pay compensation to the victim. (2) Excludes summary motoring offences. (3) Rounded to the nearest £. Note: These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.

Mr. Timpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what percentage of compensation orders issued by the courts have (a) not been paid at all, (b) not been paid in full and (c) been paid in full in each of the last five years for which figures are available. 
Bridget Prentice: The requested information is not held centrally. Data on the collection of compensation orders are not held by either the Ministry of Justice or HMCS. Information on the enforcement rate of financial penalties imposed by courts cannot make the distinction between compensation orders and other financial penalties.
Mike Penning: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many telephone numbers for which callers are charged at the rate applicable to 0845 numbers are used by (a) his Department and (b) its executive agencies for public access to services. 
Mr. Wills: The Department, and its agencies, use 42 0845 telephone numbers to provide a range of services to the public. These include IT support for online enquiries, customer service inquiries, contact with the jury summoning office and a small number of courts.
The 0845 numbers were introduced because, at the time, calls from anywhere in the UK were charged at a local rate making it cheaper for people to make contact rather than using the exchange number. With the expansion of the telecommunications markets, call charges are now set by the individual phone companies, often as part of wider service packages. The charges vary, and are outside the control of the Department. Where possible, customers are also given the exchange number, as depending on the individual inquirers telephone plan, 0845 may not now be the cheapest option.
Matthew Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many offenders were (a) cautioned and (b) issued with penalty notices for disorder in (i) the Devon and Cornwall police force area and (ii) England in 2007. 
Maria Eagle: Data reported to the Office for Criminal Justice Reform can confirm that the number of offenders cautioned in 2007 were as follows; 10,209 in the Devon and Cornwall police force area and 344,890 in England. From 1 June 2000 the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 came into force nationally and removed the use of cautions for persons under 18 and replaced them with reprimands and final warnings. These figures have been included in the above data. The cautions statistics relate to persons for whom these offences were the principal offences for which they were dealt with. When a defendant has been cautioned for two or more offences at the same time the principal offence is the more serious offence.
Hywel Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the average caseload of probation staff was in (a) 2006-07 and (b) 2007-08; and what estimate he has made of the average caseload in (i) 2008-09 and (ii) 2009-10. 
Mr. Hanson: NOMS does not produce statistics on the average case load of probation staff. However, data are collected on the number of offenders supervised by the probation service and, separately, on the number of staff in post.

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: We collect data on young peoples perceptions of bullying through the annual TellUs survey. The TellUs 3 survey for 2007-08 showed that 48 per cent. of children and young people experienced bullying during the previous year, either in school or in another setting. The TellUs 3 statistics are published on our website at:
We have introduced an indicator on bullying which underpins the Child Safety public service agreement (PSA 13, NI69), and made clear that we expect the proportion of children and young people who experience bullying to go down over the Spending Review period.
Beverley Hughes: On 11 November 2008 the Government announced the award of a grant of £1,619,000 over three financial years to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB) to establish a Child Safety Education Coalition.
Work is progressing well. RoSPA and NCB are recruiting and equipping a secretariat and identifying potential membership. My Department is agreeing with them full terms of reference and a statement of purpose document for the coalition. Key organisations with an interest in practical child safety education have been asked to attend a conference in February 2009 at which they will be invited to become members of the coalition. The membership of the coalition will then be formally announced and the coalition will confirm its priorities and plan of work for the period of the grant.
