Mrs. Laing: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what expenditure has been incurred since 3 July 2007 on (a) events and (b) consultations held as part of the Governance of Britain agenda. 
Table A includes events that have been held to date, involving external stakeholders and/or members of the public, where the Ministry of Justice incurred the expenditure. Table B includes the publication costs of all written consultations and the costs of deliberative consultations associated with the Governance of Britain agenda, but only where the Ministry of Justice incurred the expenditure. In addition we have attributed 50 per cent. of the costs associated with the development and maintenance of the Youth Citizenship Commission and Governance of Britain microsites to take account of the costs associated with running the online engagement and discussions.

Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the (a) mean and (b) median sale price in 2008-09 prices was of house sales registered with the Land Registry in each year since 2000. 
Land Registry is able to provide data on the mean price paid of all residential sales registered in each year since 2000. Details of the percentage change
on annual average prices have been calculated on the basis of the 2008 calendar year prices as the RPI data covering the 2008-09 financial year are not yet available.
This question has been answered on the basis of recorded sales figures in England and Wales. Land Registry does not hold the information requested on median price paid and could not produce it except at disproportionate cost.
|Mean price paid in (£)||Mean price paid in (£) (adjusted to 2008 prices)( 1)||RPI index (1987 = 100)|
|(1) Prices adjusted using the UK all items Retail Prices Index (RPI).|
Mr. Wills: Land Registry is able to provide information on the total number of registered properties sold in each month from January 2006 to January 2009. As these figures are extracted using price paid data, no information is available for any properties which have not been sold. The only way to identify other changes of ownership would be to extract data regarding every application event over the time period asked for. This could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Bridget Prentice: The number of defendants proceeded against at magistrates courts, heard at magistrates courts and committed for trial at the Crown court, for all offences in Cumbria police force area, 1997 to 2007 can be viewed in the following table.
These data are on the principal offence basis. The figures given in the table on court proceedings relate to persons for whom these offences were the principal offence for which they were dealt with. When a defendant has been found guilty of two or more offences, the offence selected is the one for which the heaviest penalty is imposed. Where the same disposal is imposed for two or more offences, the offence selected is the offence for which the statutory maximum penalty is the most severe.

|1. These data are on the principal offence basis.|
2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts, and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
3. Includes proceeding discontinued, discharged, withdrawn, dismissed, and found guilty at the magistrates courts.
