David T.C. Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many inmates of young offender institutions received injuries requiring an overnight stay in hospital following restraint by prison officers in each of the last three years. 
The information requested is held locally but not collated centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. To obtain this information would
require every prison that holds young offenders to check the record of every instance of use of force over the last three years to see if hospitalisation was involved.
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the average wage in Cornwall was at the latest date for which figures are available. I am replying in her absence. (152107)
Levels of earnings are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), and are provided for all full-time employees on adult rates of pay, whose pay for the survey period was not affected by absence. The ASHE, carried out in April each year, is the most comprehensive source of earnings information in the United Kingdom.
I attach a table showing the mean and median gross weekly earnings for all full-time employees in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly for the year 2006.

Guide to quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CVfor example, for an average of £200 with a CV of 5 per cent. (£10), we would expect the population average to be within the range £180 to £220.
(*) CV <= 5 per cent.
CV >5 per cent. and <= 10 per cent.

Jim Cousins: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will (a) update the estimates given for the cost of capital gains tax business paper relief in 2001-02 and 2002-03 in his Tax Ready Reckoner November 2002 and (b) give an estimate for the years from 2003-04 to 2007-08. 
Jane Kennedy: The estimates of the cost of the relief as published in the Tax Ready Reckoners and in table A3.1 of Financial Statement and Budget Reports are for business and non-business assets combined. Taper relief is dependent upon the volume of disposals, which in turn is driven by changes in asset prices, particularly share prices. The movement between 2001-02 and 2002-03 was also influenced by the maturing of business asset taper relief.

Figures for 2005-06 and 2006-07 are available in the Estimated costs of the principal tax expenditure and structural reliefs table at http//www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/tax_expenditures/table1-5.pdf. Figures for 2007-08 are not available.
Chris Huhne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what cumulative cuts in carbon emissions measures outlined in the Budget were (a) predicted to be delivered and (b) delivered in each year since 1997. 
Angela Eagle: The environmental impact of Budget measures (including carbon savings where appropriate) is set out in Table 7.2 of the Budget 2007 document. This information is included in the environmental section of each Budget and pre-Budget report since 1998.
Andy Burnham: Departments are responsible for meeting their Lyons relocation targets and some have yet to finalise their plans for meeting the remainder of the 2010 target. HM Treasury does not hold comprehensive data on where Departments intend to move staff to over the next five years.
Angela Eagle: The climate change levy is estimated to have reduced emissions by a cumulative 16.5 million tonnes of carbon up to 2005 and by 2010 it is estimated to deliver savings of over 3.5 million tonnes of carbon per year.
Alistair Burt: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) of 21 June 2007, Official Report, column 2138W, on council tax: valuation, which company provides the laser measuring devices; and what the total expenditure by the Valuation Office Agency on purchasing items from that firm was in each of the last three years. 
Jane Kennedy: The Valuation Office Agency purchases its surveying equipment, including laser measuring devices, from a company called Survey Express Services Ltd. (SES) and is invoiced in bulk. It is not possible to identify individual purchases without incurring disproportionate cost.
Jane Kennedy: The total number of all types of complaint including staff behaviour made each year is published in the annual reports of HM Revenue and Customs, previously HM Customs and Excise. Centrally held records do not provide the further detail requested.
Angela Eagle: As explained in the answer given by the then Financial Secretary the hon. Member for Wentworth (John Healey) on 28 June 2007, Official Report, column 873W, the fees paid to recruitment agencies for the Chancellor's Department could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Information on spending on recruitment consultancy is not held in a format whereby it can be separated out from other external management consultancy, or from the cost of agency staff.
