Keith Vaz: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people being held in custody have required treatment for diabetes in each of the last five years; and what procedure is used to provide such treatment. 
Mr. Coaker: The information is not held centrally. Guidance for police officers and police staff on dealing with diabetes is set out in section 2.4.6 of the Guidance on The Safer Detention and Handling of Persons in Police Custody
Code of Practice C issued under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) 1984 provides that the custody officer at the police must make sure that a detainee receives appropriate clinical attention if required or if requested by the detainee. If a detainee has medication in their possession relating to diabetes, the advice of the appropriate healthcare professional must be obtained.
Mr. Woolas: A draft Framework Agreement for the UK Border Agency was published on the Home Office website in August 2008. That document sets out the arrangements for monitoring the performance of the agency. It places a responsibility on the agency to ensure that consistent, accurate and timely information on its performance is made available to Home Office Ministers, and to the Permanent Secretary and the Home Office Board.
The UK Border Agency's performance is monitored against the Government-wide public service agreement framework in relation to PSA three for which it has lead responsibility. It is also monitored against the targets and commitments that were set out in the UK Border
Agency Business Plan, April 2008-March 2011. The business plan is also available via the Home Office website. Other internal management data are also routinely collected, including on financial and commercial aspects of the UK Border Agency's performance, and data are provided on an ad hoc basis where there is a requirement to review performance in any particular area of its activity in more detail.
Robert Neill: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what funding her Department will provide to local authorities in respect of their new duty to promote democracy in the next 12 months. 
John Healey: The anticipated extra costs to local authorities as a result of the duty to promote democracy were set out in an impact assessment published on the Communities and Local Government website when the Bill was introduced. I have placed a copy in the Library of the House. The relevant amount will be paid to local authorities in the financial year that the duty to promote democracy is commenced by order of the Secretary of State. We anticipate this to be in the financial year 2010-11.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) how much per year pilot local authorities planned to spend on financing the £475 million prudential borrowing expected in their business plans submitted to her Department's modelling exercise on the self-financing of council housing services; and what rate of interest was assumed for this borrowing; 
(2) how much each local authority has planned to spend on (a) new housing stock, (b) sustainability improvements to their housing stock and (c) stock maintenance over the 30-year period of the business plans included in her Department's modelling exercise on self-financing of council housing services. 
The exercise tested a range of scenarios and assumptions. The exercise was based on the principle that a self-financing local authority would be put in a position which broadly matched the level of resources that it would have received if it had remained within the Housing Revenue Account subsidy system.
