Mr. Laurence Robertson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 in combating crime involving dogs; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Alan Campbell
[holding answer 23 February 2009]: There has been no recent assessment of this Act by the Home Department. This Government are determined to curb the use of dogs by criminals and, in particular, gangs. Our proposed amendments to the Police and Crime Bill 2009 will build on existing legislation, to further target the use of dogs by gangs. The amendment
will give the courts power to stop an individual taking charge of a dog in a public place if it is being used to support gang related activity.
Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment her Department has made of the merits of bringing forward proposals to reduce levels of financial abuse in domestic settings; if she will review the Domestic Violence National Action Plan in respect of such proposals; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: The Government do recognise the financial and economic impact that happens within domestic violence relationships. We are working with stakeholders and the British Banker's Association to ensure that both domestic violence victims and their advisers are more fully informed of their options. We will be considering this issue when developing our Delivery Plan in the future and recently produced a leaflet including some advice on this issue. From the information received on domestic violence cases we are not able to identify the financial abuse aspect.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences of causing death by careless driving when under the influence of (a) drugs and (b) alcohol have been recorded by police since 2004. 
Jacqui Smith: The information requested is not currently available. For the period up until 2007-08, the Home Office collected data on recorded offences of Causing death by dangerous or careless driving (including while under the influence of drink or drugs). However, it has not been possible to determine from the information held centrally which, if any, of these offences were committed while the offender was under the influence.
However, with effect from April 2008, offences of Causing death by careless driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol have been collected separately and figures for 2008-09 will be available in July 2009.
Mr. Burrowes: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what qualifications the initial assessors referred to in Part 3 of the Drugs Act 2005 are required to have for the role of establishing drug misuse; whether all police stations have at least one qualified initial assessor; and what estimate she has made of the cost of maintaining and training an initial assessor in the last 12 months for which information is available. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: The current specification of the qualifications for initial assessors who deliver interventions under the drug interventions programme is given in the Home Office operational guidance for implementation of testing on arrest, required assessment and restriction on bail. That guidance defines initial assessors as
somebody who is competent to carry out the initial assessment and will, in almost all instances, be a CJIT (criminal justice integrated team) worker, who will also be employed to carry out
voluntary assessments in the same area. All such workers will have, or be working towards, the relevant drug and alcohol national occupational standards (DANOS) competencies.
In the majority of cases, CJIT workers will carry out initial assessments within custody suites. CJIT workers are employed by drug action teams and substance misuse action teams who are responsible for delivering drug interventions programme services in their areas.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many full-time equivalent operators for 999 calls there were in each year since 1997; and how many such calls there were in each of those years. 
Jacqui Smith: Data provided from the Home Office's collection relate to the volume of 999 calls since 2005-06, and are given in the following table. Previous data were published as part of HMIC's Annual Report and can be found at:
|Emergency calls received 2005-06 to 2007-08( 1)|
|n/a = Data not available.|
(1) Provisional data that have not been validated by police forces.
