To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many places of religious
worship of each faith denomination in (a) Salisbury constituency and (b) Wiltshire (i) are certified under the Places of Religious Worship Registration Act 1855 and (ii) have been so certified in each of the last five years. 
The register of buildings registered for worship is not held in a format that can be readily broken down into individual parliamentary constituencies. The closest geographical area for registration purposes which includes Salisbury and Wiltshire is the registration district of Wiltshire. There are currently 260 places of meeting for religious worship certified under the Act for the registration district of Wiltshire. These are broken down by faith and denomination as follows:
|Faith||Number of buildings|
Other Christian Bodies includes Christian denominations such as Assemblies of God, Pentecostal, Spiritualists and Independents.
|Faith||Number of places of meeting|

Mr. Gordon Prentice: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discussions she has had with her counterparts in those EU member states which allow for the admissibility of intercept evidence in the prosecution of suspected terrorists and others involved in serious crimes on the subject; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Coaker: My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has regular contact with her EU counterparts in the Justice and Home Affairs Council and in bilateral meetings. She has not had any specific discussions relating to intercept as evidence (IAE) with her counterparts in EU member states.
The Terms of Reference of the cross-party Privy Council Review of IAE (CM7324), established by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister in July 2007, included the requirement to consider the experience of other countries and their relevance to the UK. It found that (para 180):
the approaches adopted by the EU countries, other than the Republic of Ireland, tend not to have great relevance for the UK...
not to use intercept product as evidence in prosecutions.
Progress on implementing the Privy Council Reviews recommendations can be found in the written ministerial statement made by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary on 12 February 2009, Official Report, columns 89-90WS.
