As announced in June 2007 the original estimated set-up costs were £56.9 million, made up of £36.7 million for capital construction, which will be met
over a 30-year period through rental payments of £2.1 million per annum, increasing at a rate of 2.5 per cent. per annum; plus £20.2 million of other set-up costs (also announced in June 2007 and including provision of library and visitor facilities).
The current estimated set-up costs are £58.9 million; £56.9 million as described above, plus an additional £2 million of repairs to Middlesex Guildhall (as announced in July 2008). We also expect a separate cost for new security measures to bring the building into line with other high profile central Government and court buildings in central London (as announced in July 2008). I will give the House a final update on costs at the end of the programme.
Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what plans his Department has to monitor the effect of implementation of section 93 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 on the number and proportion of negotiated settlements between creditors and debtors. 
Bridget Prentice: Last year my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor asked for a reassessment to ensure the enforcement provisions in the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 remain appropriate. The Government announced, on 17 March 2009, Official Report, column 46WS, that it will not implement Part 4 of the Act which contains section 93.
Mr. Straw: The number of persons aged 10 to 17 years proceeded against at magistrates courts for sexual offences and robbery in England and Wales from 1997 to 2007 (latest available) is given in the following table.
The figures given relate to persons for whom these offences were the principal offence for which they were dealt with. For example, 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 a 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.

The data have been provided by the Youth Justice Board and relate to the contractual position as at 1 April in each year. Actual contracted places may vary through the year where a contractor fails to meet the requirements of the contract and places are declared unavailable until the issues have been addressed.
