Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many deaths of (a) men and (b) women attributable to the effects of alcohol there were in each local authority area in each of the last five years for which figures are available. 
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many deaths of (a) men and (b) women attributable to alcohol misuse there were in each local authority area in each of the last five years for which figures are available. (320047)
The tables provide the number of deaths where the underlying cause was alcohol-related for (a) males (Table 1) and (b) females (Table 2), in each local authority in England and Wales, for the years 2004 to 2008 (the latest year available). Copies have been placed in the House of Commons Library.
Internationally accepted guidance from the World Health Organisation requires only those conditions that contributed directly to the death to be recorded on the death certificate. Medical practitioners and coroners are not supposed to record all
of the diseases or conditions present at or before death, and whether a condition contributed is a matter for their clinical judgement. Lifestyle and behavioural factors, such as the deceased's alcohol consumption, are not recorded.

Mr. Maude: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office with reference to the Prime Minister's speech at Britain's Everyday Heroes Book Launch of 24 July 2007, what steps she has taken to reform the honours system to recognise more widely citizens' contributions to civic society since July 2007. 
Tessa Jowell: Following his speech on 24 July 2007, my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister wrote to all Cabinet colleagues asking them to do more to emphasise, when considering candidates for honours, the role played by volunteers and others who serve the community. The Cabinet Secretary, as Chair of the Main Honours Committee, wrote to the Chairs of the eight Independent Honours Selection Committees repeating this strategic guidance. Government Departments and all those involved in the honours process are reminded of this guidance on a regular basis. In the New Year's Honours List 2010, 73 per cent. of all awards went to people working in the community.
Mr. Stewart Jackson:
To ask the Minister for Women and Equality pursuant to the answer of 25 January 2010, Official Report, column 556W, on Equality and Human Rights Commission: industrial disputes, how
much the Commission has spent to date on (a) internal courses, (b) external courses and (c) external trainers for staff training for employment tribunal litigation and process. 
Maria Eagle: The total spent since the inception of the Commission on the 1 October 2007 on staff training for employment tribunal litigation and process is £210. This was for an external course-part of the Law Society mandatory Continuous Professional Development requirement for Solicitors.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Minister for Women and Equality if she will place in the Library a copy of the Equality and Human Rights Commission's (a) Dignity at Work policy and (b) accompanying communications strategy.

The Solicitor-General: The Attorney-General's Office and Treasury Solicitor's Department have registered to participate in Earth Hour on Saturday 27 March 2010, and will be taking active steps to ensure that all non-essential lighting is powered down during the event.
The remaining Law Officers' Departments have not actively pledged to take part in the event but most have existing systems in place to ensure that all non-essential power is switched off during the weekend.

Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport with reference to the answer of 7 July 2009, Official Report, column 644W, on parking fines, which local authorities use automatic number plate recognition technology for (a) civil parking enforcement and (b) traffic lane enforcement, according to records held by his Department; and on what date each local authority was certified to use such technology. 
Mr. Khan: Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology is not a required feature of a civil enforcement system, and any system that relied solely on ANPR evidence would not comply with the relevant legislation. Although the Department for Transport does not require information about the use of ANPR in all circumstances, our records show that the following local authorities use ANPR to assist the visual identification of vehicles when the evidence is reviewed and, in some cases, to prompt the recording of evidence.
|(a) Traffic Management Act 2004-civil parking enforcement|
|Applicant||"Approved Device" certification granted|
|(b) Transport Act 2000-civil bus lane enforcement|
|Traffic authority||"Approved Device" certification granted|
