To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to his response to the answer of 26 February 2007, Official Report, column 1076W, on the police national computer, if he will place in the Library a copy of (a) the audits conducted in August 2002 and (b) the Home Office report to Lord Falconer.

I have arranged for a copy of the two audit reports referred to and summarised in the answer to the hon. Gentleman to be placed in the Library. Further to my previous reply the audits were two research exercises undertaken by the Home Office in 2001 and 2002 to assess the accuracy of conviction information recorded on the Police National Computer partly in preparation for the establishment of the Criminal Records Bureau. The reports and a supplementary report were released in 2006 in response to a Freedom of Information request. The report to Lord Falconer was in the form of advice to Ministers and as is the convention, such advice is not published.
