§ Mr. Andrew Turner
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department (1) which of the agencies and NDPBs sponsored by her Department have a regional organisation; and if she will list the counties and unitary authorities in each region in(a) 1997 and (b) 2002; 
(2) what regional organisation her Department has; and if she will list the counties and unitary authorities in each region in (a) 1997 and (b) 2002. 
§ Ms Rosie Winterton
The headquarters offices of the Lord Chancellor's Department and its associated offices are not organised on a regional basis. They are located at sites in central London and elsewhere.
LCD's sister Department, the Northern Ireland Court Service, has its administrative headquarters in Belfast with courts and tribunals located across the Province in county court divisions aligned to local government areas.
I have today placed the information sought on the regional organisation of the agencies and NDPBs sponsored by the Lord Chancellor's Department in the Libraries of both Houses.
