Errors have been identified in the reply given by the chief executive of Jobcentre Plus to the written answer given to the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Danny Alexander) on 13 January 2010.
The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking how many compensation payments Jobcentre Plus has made through their Special Payment Scheme in (a) the UK, (b) Scotland, (c) the Highlands and (d) Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey in each of the last three years; and how much was paid out in each area in each of those years. This is something which falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.

The data below provide the information you requested in relation to (a) Great Britain (DWP does not administrate payments in Northern Ireland), and (b) Scotland.
(a) The number of compensation payments made across the GB and how much was paid out.
|GB special payments|
(b) The number of compensation payments made across Scotland and how much was paid out.
|Scotland special payments|
I am not in a position to provide a response to Questions (c) & (d) as we do not hold data in that format.
Mr. Whittingdale: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office (1) what arrangements are in place for the provision of footage obtained from the broadcast pool camera at the Iraq Inquiry to news agencies and news providers; 
Errors have been identified in the response give to the hon. Member for Maldon and East Chelmsford (Mr. Whittingdale) on 9 February 2010, relating to the cost and availability of broadcasts from the Iraq inquiry.
Tessa Jowell: The Cabinet Office is not responsible for the broadcast footage of the Iraq inquiry. The UK Broadcasting Pool, a partnership between the BBC, Sky News and ITN, is responsible for distributing footage from their cameras in the inquiry's hearing room. Other broadcasters would need to make arrangements with the pool, not the Government or the inquiry. There is already an agreement to provide footage to all Iraqi broadcasters at reduced cost.
Mr. Maude: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what her policy is in respect of the installation and use of (a) Internet Explorer, (b) Firefox and (c) Opera website browsers by Government departments. 
Errors have been identified in the response given to the right hon. Member for Horsham (Mr. Maude) on 24 February 2010. The words "such as Firefox and Opera" and "such as Internet Explorer" were incorrectly included in the answer.
Angela E. Smith: Government policy regarding installation and use of web browsers is that all decisions must be in line with value for money requirements. In addition, the Open Source, Open Standards, Re-use strategy requires Departments to consider open source browsers on a level basis with proprietary browsers.
