Tom Cox: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of jobs created in the Greater London area as a result of public investment in each of the last five years. 
While statistics of jobs created as a result of public investment are not available, ONS's published workforce jobs statistics enable comparisons to be made of net changes, from year to year, in the total number of jobs.

Mr. Timms: The Government supports my hon. Friend's ten-minute rule Bill entitled 'Regulation of Financial Services (Land Transactions)' which was introduced to the House on 26 January 2005. This will enable activities relating to certain arrangements involving the acquisition or disposal of land to be regulated under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA), which include home reversion schemes.
Chris Ruane: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the percentage change in household net income has been for each decade over each of the past 30 years; and if he will make a statement. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the percentage change in household net income has been in each decade over each of the past 30 years. (214018)
The information requested is shown in the table below. The household net income series used in the calculations is the national accounts series for real disposable income of the combined household and non-profit institutions serving households (NPISH) sectors, i.e. total income less deductions, e.g. taxes. The data are chained volume measures (i.e. the effect of price changes is excluded) and are referenced on the year 2001.

Mr. Llwyd: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the estimated loss of revenue would be if the 10 per cent. band of income tax were to be increased by (a) £1,000, (b) £2,000 and (c) £3,000. 
Mr. Llwyd: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the estimated loss of revenue would be if the lower threshold for income tax were increased by (a) £1,000, (b) £2,000 and (c) £3,000; and how many existing taxpayers would no longer pay income tax in each case. 
|Number of taxpayers taken out of income tax|
|(a) Increase Personal Allowances by £1,000||6.6||1.8|
|(b) Increase Personal Allowances by £2,000||12.7||3.4|

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 14 December 2004, Official Report, column 987W, on Inland Revenue informers, when the Inland Revenue first categorised members of the public assisting them as informers or covert human

intelligence sources; and what criteria the Inland Revenue uses to determine whether a member of the public assisting it is a covert human intelligence source rather than an informer. 
Dawn Primarolo: Members of the public who voluntarily supply information to the Inland Revenue, concerning the tax affairs of others are by definition informers. Section 26 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2002 sets out the legal definition of a Covert Human Intelligence Source. The Inland Revenue complies with this legislation, and the supporting Codes of Practice, in dealing with Covert Sources.
Mr. Hoyle: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the life expectancy of (a) men and (b) women in (i) the North West, (ii) Lancashire and (iii) Chorley was in (A) 198089, (B) 199099 and (C) 2004. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the life expectancy of (a) men and (b) women in (i) the North West, (ii) Lancashire and (iii) Chorley was in (A) 19801989, (B) 199099 and (C) 2004. (214004)
Figures for life expectancy at birth for English regions and local authorities are published annually by ONS based on three-year rolling averages. These were first calculated for the period 19911993 and the most recent available data are for 20012003. Figures for these two periods, and for 19941996 and 19971999, are provided in the table below for the North West and Chorley. Figures are not readily available for current or former counties, such as Lancashire. No sub-national life expectancy figures are available for time periods before 19911993, because of constitutional and boundary changes to administrative areas during the 1990s.
