Mr. Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether officials in his Department who have lost laptops that were the property of his Department in the last 12 months have been charged the full value of replacement. 
Mr. Straw: Laptop losses are investigated by line managers and, where appropriate, disciplinary action is considered, in line with the Departments policy. The Department has not charged individuals for the replacement value of laptops which were lost by officials in the period May 2007, when the Ministry was established, to March 2008.
Mr. Malik: The Ministry of Justice does not hold centrally information on how many staff awaydays were organised. To collate this information would necessitate inquiring of all business areas across significant number of MOJ bodies, which would entail disproportionate cost.
Mr. O'Hara: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Torbay of 19 May 2008, Official Report, columns 71-3W, on Walton Prison: cemeteries, (1) what steps his Department has taken to resolve (a) any outstanding exhumation and funeral costs of and (b) matters relating to DNA testing in respect of George Kelly; 
(3) if he will direct the Corporate Management Board of his Department to make an assessment of his Department's handling of matters relating to the George Kelly case in the light of the representations it has received on the matter; 
(4) how many submissions have been made to Ministers in his Department and its predecessor in respect of the George Kelly case, and on what dates;
and what the (a) role and (b) pay band was of each official who (i) drafted and (ii) was copied in on each submission.

Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will take steps to collect and publish information on the number and proportion of adult prisoners in each prison in England and Wales who had served in the armed services at any time prior to conviction. 
Mr. Hanson: In response to the hon. Member's question on the collection of data on the numbers of prisoners in England and Wales who had previously served in the armed services, I refer him to my answer on 24 March 2009, Official Report, column 320W.
Mr. Grieve: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what proportion of (a) ham, (b) pork, (c) beef and (d) chicken served in public sector prisons was produced in the UK in the last period for which figures are available. 
This most recent information is contained in a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs report for 2007-08 detailing the proportion of food grown or reared in the UK used by Whitehall departments, including that supplied to public sector prisons in England and Wales under contracts negotiated by HM Prison Service, now part of the National Offender Management Service (NOMS).
The data submitted by the Ministry of Justice was for 2007-08, it is anticipated by suppliers that the use of domestic frozen meat have increased since these figures were submitted. The Ministry of Justice is attempting
to increase its percentage of meat bought of UK origin where it can and is currently retendering its frozen contracts (awarded in 2003) utilising food quality standards developed with the OGC and DEFRA. In addition, the objectives identified in the PSFPI form part of the frozen, retender evaluation criteria.
