Mr. Woolas: The Security Policy Framework, the Data Handling Report and the National Information Assurance Strategy produced by the Cabinet Office provide a strategic framework for protecting information that Government handles and put in place a set of mandatory measures to which Departments must adhere.
It is not in the interest of the security of the Department, or that of the public, to disclose detailed information relating to security of departmental IT systems. Disclosing such information would carry a significant risk of enabling criminals and those who would attempt to cause disruptive threats to the department to deduce how to conduct attacks and therefore potentially enhance their capability to carry out such attacks.
Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much has been spent on (a) strategy and planning, (b) design and build, (c) hosting and infrastructure, (d) content provision and (e) testing and evaluation for his Department's websites in each of the last three years; and how much has been allocated for each such category of expenditure in 2009-10.

The Department engages consultants and contractors through suppliers on consultancy and contractor assignments. We do not, therefore, pay the salaries, nor any incentives or bonuses for these individuals.
Mr. Evennett: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many deportations of residents of the London borough of Bexley without leave to remain there have been in each of the last three years. 
Mr. Woolas: Information of the number of individuals who were resident in the London borough of Bexley who have been removed in each of the last three years could be obtained only by undertaking a search of case files which would incur disproportionate cost.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) simple cautions for cannabis possession and (b) cannabis warnings have been issued by each police force in each year since 2004.
