Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many (a) Ministers and (b) officials from his Department are planning to attend the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in February 2010; and what estimate he has made of the cost of such attendance. 
Mr. Michael Foster: Since 1999 the Government have published on an annual basis a list of all overseas visits by Cabinet Ministers costing in excess of £500, as well as the total cost of all ministerial travel overseas. From 2007-08 the list was extended to include all Ministers. The list also provides information on the number of officials who accompany Ministers. Copies are available in the Libraries of the House. Information for 2009-10 will be published as soon as the information is available.
Data on the number of key workers in Staffordshire will be held by the relevant employers of key workers. A full list of eligible key worker roles for the homebuy scheme can be found in the Capital Funding Guide on the Homes and Communities Agency's website at;
The homebuy scheme enables first time buyers with a household income of less than £60,000, who cannot afford to purchase without assistance, to buy a share of a home and get a first step on the housing ladder. Key workers are a priority group for this scheme.
John McDonnell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many people rescued from fires by the fire service in each (a) fire brigade area and (b) region were (i) injured and (ii) uninjured in each of the last three years for which figures are available. 
The number of people rescued but uninjured are recorded, but under the system which ran until March 2009, full details of incidents for only one in five of incidents that did not involve injuries were input to central databases. It has been shown that, due to this methodology, estimates of numbers rescued derived from data held centrally are unreliable below national level.
