Mr. Stewart Jackson:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Meriden of 22 October 2009, Official Report, column 1645W, on local government finance,
what data sets not contained in the national indicator set local authorities are required to submit to his Department. 
Phil Hope: Data on adult personal social services expenditure from councils with adult social services responsibilities in England, are submitted annually to the Department on the personal social services expenditure return, known as the PSS Ex1. These are the only adult social care finance data submitted to the Department.
Mr. Randall: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many qualified school nurses there are in schools in the London borough of Hillingdon. 
Ann Keen: Information is not held in the format required. Information is available for the number of qualified nursing staff in the school nursing area of work, directly employed by national health service organisations as of September 2008. The number of qualified nursing staff in the school nursing area of work in Hillingdon Primary Care Trust (PCT) is shown as follows, broken down into the two categories of nurses who have a specific qualification in school nursing and nurses who do not.

Mr. Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the average length of prison sentence for people convicted of aggravated burglary has been in the last five years. 
Claire Ward: The requested information is provided in the following table.
|Average custodial sentence length (ACSL) for aggravated burglary(1, 2 )and total sentenced to life and indeterminate sentences 2004-08|
|(1) Theft Act 1968 S.10—Aggravated burglary in a dwelling.|
(2) Theft Act 1968 S.10—Aggravated burglary in a building other than a dwelling.
(3) ACSL excludes life and indeterminate sentences.
1. These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems.
2. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
These data are presented on the principal offence basis. Where an offender has been sentenced for more than one offence the principal offence is the one for which the heaviest sentence was imposed. Where the same sentence has been imposed for two or more offences the principal offence is the one for which the statutory maximum is most severe.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how many (a) males and (b) females aged (i) under 17, (ii) between 17 and 21, (iii) between 21 and 25, (iv) between 25 and 29 and (v) over 30 years of age have been convicted of a drug offence in England and Wales in each year since 1998; 
(2) how many people have been convicted of an offence involving violent behaviour on the rail network in each year since 1998;

(5) how many people have been convicted of an offence arising from tackling an intruder in (a) residential property and (b) retail property in each year since 1998; 
(6) how many people have been convicted of an offence of absconding by person released on bail in England and Wales in each year since 1998; 
(7) how many people in each age group have been convicted of an offence relating to sale or use of fireworks in each year since 1998;

Claire Ward: The available information has been placed in the Libraries of the House (tables 1 to 15).
The Court Proceedings Database holds information on defendants proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for criminal offences in England and Wales. Specific information on the circumstances of an offence are not held centrally and it is therefore not possible to identify whether an offence arising from tackling an intruder occurred in a residential or retail property.
Cautions and court proceedings data for 2009 are expected to be published in the autumn, 2010.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will bring forward legislative proposals to repeal the provisions of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 which provide for (a) the extension of bailiffs' powers of entry and the use of force by enforcement agents and (b) charging orders to be granted when the borrowers are repaying debt in accordance with a county court judgment. 
Bridget Prentice: I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave the hon. Member for Meriden (Mrs. Spelman) on 24 April 2009, Official Report, column 959W. There are no proposals to repeal the primary legislation that allows for the extension of bailiffs' powers of entry and the use of force by enforcement agents. Neither are there any proposals to repeal the provisions which provide for charging orders to be granted when the borrowers are repaying debt in accordance with a county court judgment.
Dr. Cable: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what estimate he has made of the average length of time taken by (a) his Department and (b) its agencies to pay invoices from (i) small and medium-sized enterprises and (ii) all creditors in the last 12 months. 
Following on from the Prime Minister's statement at PMQs on 8 October 2008, all central Government Departments have agreed to the target of paying 90 per cent. of small and medium-sized enterprise invoices within 10 days of receiving a valid invoice. The MOJ has been reporting its performance to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) since November 2008. The performance reported to BIS covers the core Department and its agencies and does not distinguish between small and medium-sized enterprises and all creditors. To attempt to break the performance down
further between SMEs and all creditors by Department and its agencies would incur disproportionate costs.
In the five months from November 2008 to March 2009, my Department's performance against the 10-day target ranged from 55 per cent. to 67 per cent. of all creditor invoices being paid within this timeframe. From April 2009 to December 2009 I am pleased to be able to report that performance has significantly improved ranging from 82 per cent. to 93 per cent. of all creditor invoices now being paid within 10 days. The payment processes operated across the MOJ and its agencies are now operating to a level of consistency that has seen the Prime Minister's target being achieved for the last four months of 2009.
While I am pleased with this improvement, my finance teams across the Department continue to monitor performance and look to see if we can raise our performance level further.
Mr. Sanders: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what guidance has been provided to his Department's staff on providing information about its staff in response to freedom of information and subject access requests; when this guidance was (a) produced and (b) promulgated; and who produced it. 
Mr. Wills: There is no internal guidance which specifically focuses on providing information about its staff in response to freedom of information and subject access requests.
However, guidance available to the Ministry's staff on the handling of requests made under the Freedom of Information Act and the Data Protection Act includes guidelines on the disclosure of the names of staff working at the Ministry. These have been available since November 2009 and accord with the Information Commissioner's guidance on the disclosure of officials' names. In line with this guidance, all requests are dealt with on a case by case basis, and the disclosure of information considered accordingly.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the (a) lowest, (b) average and (c) highest fine given to a person fined on conviction for possession of (i) cannabis, (ii) ecstasy, (iii) cocaine, (iv) crack cocaine and (v) heroin was in each year since 1998. 
Claire Ward: The requested information is shown in the following tables:
|Average, maximum and minimum fine amounts imposed at all courts for having possession of a controlled drug by drug type and year, 1998-2008, England and Wales|
|Fine amount (£)|
|Drug type and year||Minimum||Maximum||Average||Number of persons fined|
