MOJ HQ has only one listed building, Gwydyr House, which is Grade II* listed. The ownership of Gwydyr House pre-dates April 2006.
HMPS have provided a document detailing all listed buildings and monuments they own and their location. The information includes specific details of exactly which part of each building or monument is listed. There are examples of buildings that have several separate listings and are graded differently. This information has been placed in the House Libraries.
HMCS have provided a schedule of Ancient Monuments and schedules of Grade I listed buildings, Grade II listed buildings and Grade II* listed buildings. All information provided is of buildings where ownership pre-dates April 2006. This information has been placed in the House Libraries.
The Tribunal Service has two listed buildings; 52 Melville Street, Edinburgh which is graded B (the Scottish equivalent to Grade II) and 14 East Parade, Sheffield which is also Grade II listed. Both buildings pre-date April 2006 in terms of ownership.
NOMS do not hold this information centrally and to obtain would require undertaking an investigation which would incur a disproportionate cost.
Dr. Pugh: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what buildings are owned or operated by his Department under a private finance initiative (PFI) arrangement; and which companies are involved with each such PFI arrangement. 
Dr. Murrison: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many prisoners were released from each prison in London under home detention curfew orders in each of the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Hanson: The following table shows the number of prisoners released under the Home Detention Curfew scheme from prison establishments in London in each month in 2007, which is the latest year for which the data are available.
|Belmarsh||Brixton||Feltham||Holloway||Latchmere House||Pentonville||Wormwood Scrubs||Wandsworth|
Figures rounded to the nearest 10; * indicates number of releases is fewer than 5 (but not 0).
The Home Detention Curfew scheme enables suitable prisoners primarily serving between three months and less than four years to be released subject to an electronically monitored curfew up to 135 days earlier than the half way point of their sentence. The scheme has been very successful in providing prisoners with a smoother and more effective re-integration into the community enabling prisoners to be released from prison early, while still subject to restrictions placed on their liberty. HDC helps prisoners resume employment or training at an earlier stage and so support themselves and their families.
The decision to grant release on HDC rests with the Governor and eligible prisoners must pass a risk assessment, which includes an assessment of home circumstances carried out by the probation service, before release can be granted.
Prisoners subject to the notification requirements of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and those serving extended sentences for public protection are statutorily excluded from release on HDC. Offenders serving sentences for certain serious violent offences, including prisoners serving sentences for terrorism legislation offences and prisoners with any history of sexual offending are presumed unsuitable unless there are exceptional circumstances.
No prisoners are released on HDC unless they have served at least one quarter of their sentence subject to a minimum of 30 days in custody. These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing, and have therefore been rounded to the nearest 10.
Dr. Murrison: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice by what method of competition the Director General of the National Offender Management Service was recruited; and if he will make a statement. 
Dr. Murrison: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many (a) members of HM Prison Service Board and (b) Prison Service area managers have been employed at HM Prison Swaleside in the last 12 months. 
Mr. Gordon Prentice: To ask the Leader of the House how many hon. Members have been required to reimburse the Members Vote following a determination that a parliamentary report funded from the Communications Allowance fell outside the rules which apply to that allowance in the last 12 months for which figures are available. 
Chris Bryant: In the 2008-09 financial year the Department was asked by Members to review some 1,250 individual publications about half of which were parliamentary reports. Some 50 per cent. of documents reviewed were approved without amendment. One Member was asked to repay costs relating to a parliamentary report as a result of a case considered by the Standards and Privileges Committee and a further five Members were asked to repay costs as a result of decisions by the Department of Resources, either following a complaint or a review of a claim.
