Commencement of Legislation

Brian White: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what pieces of legislation passed in the last 30 years that the Department is responsible for remain to be brought into force, broken down by year of enactment. [195615]

Mr. Timms: The available information is as follows:

1979

1994

2000

2003

2004

There are likely to be other legislative provisions passed in the last 30 years that the Chancellor's Departments are responsible for and which remain to be brought into force. However, comprehensive information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. In the case of the Inland Revenue, legislative provisions dealing with revenue matters are normally only included in Finance Acts where it is necessary. But, rarely, provisions may be included in anticipation that particular events will happen and until they do the legislation may not yet have come into force.

Consultants

Mr. Weir: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department spent in each year since 2002 on employing (a) external management consultants and (b) external human resources consultants; and if he will make a statement. [195759]

Mr. Timms: I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 25 October 2004, Official Report, columns 1055–56W to the Member for New Forest, East (Dr. Lewis).

Earnings

Denzil Davies: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his estimate is of the number of (a) full-time and (b) part-time employees in the United Kingdom in each of the last five available years. [198170]

Mr. Timms: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.
