Mr. Straw: Year end non-consolidated performance payments are paid to high performing members of the senior civil service (SCS) to reflect their individual contribution during the previous performance year. In the 2008-09 financial year £1,648,000 was paid to SCS staff.
Payment of non-consolidated pay to former DCA staff below the SCS level may be either year end or in year performance payments. Year end performance payments are paid only to staff who achieve the highest possible performance marking for the previous reporting year, which runs from 1 April to 31 March. The amount of year end payments made in August 2008 to staff in the former DCA was £2,011,200.
NOMS operate a performance management system which provides for year end performance payments and recognises outstanding performance with in year payments. It is not possible to give a figure for the total paid in performance payments for the current financial year i.e. 2008-09. However, such payments cannot exceed 0.5 per cent. of the paybill in any unit.
Performance payments, which are non-consolidated and non-pensionable, are paid to high performing individuals as part of the Departments reward strategy. Such payments are a cost-effective means of encouraging and rewarding high performance and drives continuous improvement throughout the organisation.
Mr. Grieve: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many bonus payments were made to (a) senior civil servants and (b) other staff working in (i) HM Courts Service, (ii) HM Prison Service, (iii) the National Offender Management Service and (iv) the Youth Justice Board in 2007-08; and how much was paid in such bonuses to people in each category. 
Across the MoJ, end year non-consolidated performance payments are paid to high performing members of the senior civil service (SCS) to reflect their individual contribution during the previous reporting year. During
2007-08, 54 members of the SCS were paid non-consolidated performance pay amounting to £383,000, in respect of performance during the 2006-07 reporting year.
End of year payments of non-consolidated performance pay are made as part of the annual pay award to staff who have performed beyond expectations throughout the performance year. In HM Courts Service 1,667 staff received end of year non-consolidated performance pay during the 2007-08 financial year for performance in the 2006-07 reporting year. The amount paid was £666,800. This was paid in October 2007 at the time of the implementation of the 2007 pay award for all staff.
In year payments of non-consolidated performance pay are one-off payments to staff who have made an exceptional contribution on specific occasions. It is not possible to provide details of payments made to staff in HMCS separate from those working in other parts of the Ministry of Justice, other than at a disproportionate cost.
End of year non-consolidated performance payments are made as part of the annual pay award to staff who have performed at a level beyond expectations throughout the performance year. In HM Prison Service 4,816 staff received an end of year payment of non-consolidated performance pay in the 2007-08 financial year, totalling £1,096,766.
In year non-consolidated performance payments are one-off payments to staff who have made an exceptional contribution on specific occasions. During the financial
year 2007-08, 3,888 staff in HMPS received in year payments totalling £1,333,039.
The National Offender Management Service was established as an agency on 1 April 2008. The NOMS Agency consists of the HM Prison Service and the national probation service. The information contained in (ii) covers both of these parts of the NOMS Agency.
In grades below the SCS, 43 staff were awarded non-consolidated performance pay in year totalling £23,350. There were 21 end of year awards of non-consolidated performance pay to staff in relation to annual performance marking. These payments amounted to £18,090.
Mr. Vara: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many public consultations his Department has conducted in the last 12 months; how long each consultation was open for; how many responses were received in each case; and what the cost of conducting each consultation was. 
Mr. Wills: The information requested is shown in the following table, which sets out details of the 37 formal written public consultations, carried out by the Ministry of Justice in the last twelve months. The printing and web publication costs of a standard consultation are met centrally by the Department. The only other cost of a standard consultation is the cost of staff time in preparing individual consultations. No breakdown exists for these costs and to provide one would incur disproportionate cost. But where activity over and above a standard consultation has been carried out and those cost details are available I have provided them.
|Consultation||Consultation period||Number of responses||Additional costs of consultation (£)|
|(1) Standard consultation.|
(2) 49 to the paper155 plus through workshops and stakeholder events.
(3) Not yet available.
