Dr Thérèse Coffey: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the average annual cost to the public purse was of a place in (a) HMP Hollesley Bay, (b) HMP Warren Hill and (c) Warren Hill Young Offender Institution in each of the last two years. 
The figures are based on the financial outturns for each year and the average certified normal accommodation (CNA). HMP & YOI Warren Hill has been a juvenile holding establishment for the period referred to and therefore there is only one figure presented.
Caroline Lucas: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 12 October 2009, Official Report, column 181W, on youth custody: restraint techniques, what piloting of new systems of restraint he has undertaken since October 2009. 
Mr Blunt: As part of the ongoing work to implement the recommendations in the Independent Review of Restraint, the National Tactical Response Group is developing a new behaviour management and restraint system which is intended to replace PCC (the system currently used in Secure Training Centres). This new system will be examined and accredited by a panel of medical and operational experts. The accreditation process will begin this autumn. Once accredited an early adaptor site will be identified and the system assessed further before wider roll-out is considered.
Matthew Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how much her Department and its predecessor spent on (a) reimbursement of staff expenses and (b) the 10 largest staff expense reimbursement claims in each year since 1997. 
Mr David Jones:
The Wales Office was established in July 1999. Records before 2004 do not exist for the reimbursement of staff expenses. In recent years staff have sometimes filed claims spanning a number of
months but submitted one claim, and it is those claims that usually feature in the 10 largest in each year. The figures for each year from 2004 along with the 10 highest claims in each year are as follows:

Andrew Stunell: Communities and Local Government is responsible for the England and Wales Building Regulations. These set out the standards which new buildings must meet, and Part L of the Regulations (conservation of fuel and power) sets out energy efficiency standards for all new domestic and non-domestic buildings. The current Part L represents 90% improvement on 1990 standards, and in October 2010, the new standards will specify a further 25% reduction in carbon emissions from new buildings compared to the current 2006 Regulations. The Building Regulations cover all public buildings apart from the Crown Estate (buildings owned by Government Departments). There are no incentives offered for complying with the regulations, but the Government's proposed Green Deal will provide building occupiers with access to funding for energy efficiency measures, to be repaid through savings on their energy bills.
