Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was spent on salaries for her Department's staff working on matters relating to housing in each of the last five years. 
Mr. Khan: Details of staff salaries are recorded on the Department's payroll but cannot be disaggregated to identify staff working on matters relating to housing in each of the last five years without incurring a disproportionate cost.
Please note that the following table shows salaries for staff in CLG's housing group. It does not include legal/planning staff who may spend a percentage of their staff or time working on housing related issues, cross-cutting departments who are interlinked with housing and staff who work on other general housing related' issues who are not within one of the above directorates.
Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to paragraph 6.5 of her Department's document entitled Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill: policy document on regional strategies, if she will place in the Library a copy of the business planning guidance issued to regional assemblies by her Department. 
Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when his Department plans to respond to the proposals for a system of self-regulation of all types of online media marketing communications referred to in the Byron Review Action Plan. 
Barbara Follett [holding answer 20 April 2009]: The Advertising Association's Digital Media Group has been examining this issue and Professor Byron recommended that progress be reviewed when the conclusions of the assessment of the impact of the commercial world on children's well-being are received. I understand that the Group continues to work on a practicable and effective way forward to address the concerns identified in the Byron Review about those online marketing communications not already covered by the Committee of Advertising Practise (CAP) Code. We look forward to their securing the necessary agreements across industry to resolve any outstanding issues.
Mr. Maude: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what the (a) purpose and (b) budget of the works in 10 Downing Street with Westminster City Council planning application reference 09/00619/LBC is. 
Kevin Brennan: I refer the right hon. Member to the answer given by the Secretary, Cabinet Office, my hon. Friend the Member for West Bromwich, West (Mr. Watson) to the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) on 20 March 2008, Official Report, column 1303W.
Mr. Evans: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many deaths were caused by clostridium difficile infection in patients aged (a) under 65 years and (b) 65 years and over in each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many deaths were caused by Clostridium difficile infection in patients aged (a) under 65 years and (b) 65 years and over in each of the last 10 years. (269146)
The attached table provides the number of deaths where Clostridium difficile was recorded as the underlying cause of death for persons aged (a) under 65 years and (b) 65 years and over, in England and Wales, for 1999 and 2001 to 2007 (the latest year available). Figures for 1998 and 2000 are not available.
Although Clostridium difficile is defined by the Health Protection Agency as a healthcare associated infection, it is not possible to state whether the deceased was a patient at the time of death, or where the infection was acquired.
|Table 1. Deaths with an underlying cause of Clostridium difficile( 1) , England and Wales( 2) ,1999 and 2001-07( 3, 4)|
|Under 65 years||65 years and over|
|(1 )Identified using the methodology described in Office for National Statistics: Report: Deaths involving Clostridium difficile: England and Wales, 2001-2005. Health Statistics Quarterly 33, 71-75.|
(2) Figures for England and Wales include deaths of non-residents.
(3) All deaths in England and Wales are coded by the Office for National Statistics according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). The Tenth revision (ICD-10) has been used since 2001.
In the Ninth revision of the ICD (ICD-9) there are no specific codes that would allow deaths mentioning Clostridium difficile to be easily identified. Figures for 1998 and 2000 are therefore not available as ICD-9 was used in these years. Deaths registered in 1999 were coded to both ICD-9 and ICD-10 as part of a special study to compare the two ICD revisions, and have therefore been used to give an additional year of data on deaths involving Clostridium difficile.
(4) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
Jenny Willott: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the (a) energy consumed by, (b) energy cost of and (c) carbon dioxide emissions from each category of IT device in each division of his Department in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Watson: In 2007-08 the Cabinet Office used 929,000 kWh of electricity at a cost of £61,000 for its IT services. This equates to carbon dioxide emissions of 401 tonnes. The main category of ICT devices and their energy consumption was:
|kWh||C0 2 (tonne)|
In June 2007, my Department became part of the public sector flex, a framework for the provision of shared ICT services. Flex provides a number of energy saving measures which are estimated to save the Cabinet Office 84,000 kWh of electricity, equivalent to 36 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, during its first year of operation.
Jenny Willott: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps his Department has taken to address the effect on levels of carbon dioxide emissions from his Department of its ICT purchases since the publication of the Greening Government ICT Strategy; and if he will make a statement. 
Reducing the number of printers, replacing them with multi-function devices using green printing options.
Increasing average server capacity to over 50 per cent.
Switching monitors to standby after five minutes of inactivity.
Shutting down PCs after office hours and at weekends.
Enabling active power management on desktops.
Ensuring that equipment that is no longer required by the department, can be re-used by other organisations such as charities.
Starting to replace existing servers with storage area networking devices that implement storage virtualisation
The lifecycle of all end user devices has been extended to five years
The number of PCs and laptops will be reduced to as close to one per person as possible. Internal charging regimes will incentivise the rationalisation.
Thin client technology will be used with low-power consumption CPUs.
Services will be moved to a data centre using server technology that complies with the recommendations in the Greening Government ICT Strategy.
