Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the health and safety accidents which occurred in HM Treasury in 200102, stating the reason for each accident; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Prisk: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received about the credit incentives from learning providers about higher level information technology skills; and what financial incentives his Department is planning to encourage individuals to undertake training. 
John Healey: The Chancellor and other Treasury Ministers have received representations on skills issues from a variety of organisations, including learning providers. The Government are currently reviewing the funding of adult learning, including the role of financial incentives. This review will feed into the National Skills Strategy, which will be published in the summer.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what reasons underlie the reduction in expenditure by the Office of Government Commerce between 200102 and 200203; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Boateng: The level of resource consumption estimated for 2001 -02 for the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) in the latest H.M. Treasury Departmental Report (Cm5425) was £88 million, reducing to a planned -£5million in 200203. The actual level of resource consumption in 200102 was £6million. The change between the estimated and actual outturns for 200102 is largely accounted for by a revaluation to and change in timing of the run down of some of the provisions the OGC holds in respect of its obligation to dispose of the Government's remaining surplus Residual Civil Estate. The change in the timing will also affect the outturn for 200203 where it is now anticipated that the likely outturn will be some £50 million. Such fluctuations in the valuations of and timing for the sale of the remaining surplus Estate, which reflect market conditions and opportunities, can be expected to continue in the future, although on a smaller scale as the size of the remaining Residual Estate continues to reduce. The actual change in resource consumption between years also reflects a reduction in the level of income the OGC generates .
