There have been several site search exercises for the London/Essex and South East carried out by NOMS since June 2005. These searches identified over 300 sites, the majority of which were dismissed from consideration at an early stage and not visited. Information relating to those sites that were visited is not held centrally and can be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
No. Apart from the two sites at Beam Park West (Dagenham) and Runwell (Essex) that I announced to Parliament on 27 April 2009, Official
Report, columns 569-80, there are currently no plans to build a 1,500 place prison at any other location. We plan to start a fresh search for potential sites for the remaining new prisons in due course.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many abstinence-based therapeutic programmes there are for drug and alcohol addiction in women's prisons; and how many prisoners (a) entered and (b) completed such programmes in each year for which records are available. 
Mr. Straw: A comprehensive drug treatment framework is available for women in prison. Interventions fall into three groups: clinical treatment (detoxification and maintenance), counselling, assessment, referral, advice and throughcare services (CARATs) and (abstinence-based) accredited drug treatment programmes.
Currently four different accredited drug treatment programmes are available to women in various establishments: 12-Step, P-ASRO (Prison-Addressing Substance-Related Offending), the Short Duration Programme (SDP) and Therapeutic Communities (TCs). The following table shows the number of prisoners starting and completing these programmes in each of the last five years.
|(1) 2004-05 is the first full year for which accurate starts and completions data are available.|
These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems. Although care is taken when processing and analysing returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
Where alcohol is part of poly-drug misuse, CARAT services are available to all women prisoners in England and Wales. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is available in 11 women's prisons, although no participation data are collected centrally.
The Office for Criminal Justice Reform is currently working with Her Majesty's Court Service (HMCS), and representatives from National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) and the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) to improve the level of recording in both the police and the courts.
Mr. Straw: In my written ministerial statement of 6 July 2009, Official Report, columns 34-38WS, on Audit of Licence Revocation, I announced that, as at 26 June 2009, 954 offenders who had their licences revoked between 1984 and 31 March 2009 were not recorded as having been returned to custody. Of the 954, there were 192 foreign nationals. Of the 192, 64 were assessed as meeting the criteria for deportation.
All agencies are working together to review and revise the end-to-end recall process, to ensure that we have the strongest grip on these individuals and can return them to custody as quickly as possible. The police have an action plan in place to deal with outstanding cases.
The Probation Service has significantly improved its enforcement of breaches. In 1997 only a third of breaches were being appropriately enforced, compared to over 95 per cent. by 2008. Before 1999 recall was rarely used because such cases had to go through the courts.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the cost to the public purse was of legal advice and representation in the concluded judicial review in the case concerning Michael Shields. 
Mr. Straw: The judicial review on Michael Shields' application for a free pardon was concluded on 17 December 2008 in the Administrative Court. The total cost of legal advice and representation associated with the judicial review was £64,577 including disbursements and VAT.
Mr. Hurd: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the cost was of (a) the Office of Public Sector Information logo and (b) other rebranding of Her Majesty's Stationery Office as the Office of Public Sector Information. 
Mr. Wills: The renaming of Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO) as the Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI), which took effect from 1 July 2005, was an internal management unit change at the Cabinet Office to reflect its expanded responsibilities to be the principal focal point within Government for advising on and regulating the operation of public sector information re-use.
All work on renaming (updating the HMSO webpage, creating a new logo and issuing new business cards) was resourced and completed in house by HMSO staff as part of their day-to-day tasks. No additional costs were incurred and none of the work was contracted out to external suppliers.
Mr. Hurd: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer of 20 April 2009, Official Report, column 351W, on central government: public relations, which public relations firms were on the Central Office of Information's list of accredited public relations companies in each year since 1997. 
As Chief Executive of the Central Office of Information (COI), I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question on Public Relations Companies (251054).
A list of Public Relations companies on the Central Office of Information Framework can be found on the COI website:
A copy of has also been placed in the Library of the House.
Information on companies from previous frameworks is not held centrally.
Angela E. Smith: All civil servants are subject to the "Rules on the Acceptance of Outside Appointments by Crown Servants" which require them to seek approval for employment they wish to take up within two years of leaving the civil service.
The independent Advisory Committee on Business Appointments advises on applications under the rules from the most senior civil servants. The Committee publishes on its website and in its annual reports, information about its recommendations on appointments that have been taken up or announced. Copies of the Committee's annual reports are available in the Libraries of the House and at:
Mr. Burns: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many and what proportion of young people aged between 18 and 24 years resident in the Chelmsford local authority area claimed jobseeker's allowance in (a) each of the last five years and (b) 2009 to date. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many and what proportion of young people aged between 18 and 24 years resident in the Chelmsford local authority area claimed jobseeker's allowance in (a) each of the last five years and (b) 2009 to date.
