Mr. Hepburn: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people have died due to cancer in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) the UK in each year since 1997. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many people have died due to cancer in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) the UK in each year since 1997. (222144)
The latest year for which data are available is 2003. Figures for Jarrow constituency, which is made up of parts of Gateshead and South Tyneside local authorities, are not available. For this reason, the figures for 1997 to 2003, provided in the attached table, are for Gateshead and South Tyneside, the North East Government Office Region and the United Kingdom.
Angus Robertson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many times during the (a) Italian, (b) Irish and (c) Dutch presidency of the EU the Committee for the Implementation of the Regulation establishing an Instrument for Structural Policies for Pre-accession met; when and where these meetings took place; what UK Government expert was present; and if he will make a statement. 
The Committee for the implementation of the Regulation establishing an Instrument for Structural Policies for Pre-accession (ISPA) met once under the Italian presidency of the EU, on 12 and 13 November 2003. The Committee did not meet under the Irish presidency but met once under the Dutch presidency, on 28 October 2004. The meetings took place in Brussels and were attended by an official from the Department for International Development.
Council Decision 1999/468/EC sets out to "simplify the requirements for the exercise of implementing powers conferred on the Commission". As an obligation to this Decision, the Commission undertakes to publish an annual report on the working of committees. The reports are deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.
I refer the hon. Gentleman to the series of Command Papers that sets out the main elements of government business in the EU under the respective presidencies: Cm6174, laid in April 2004 and Cm6310, laid in September 2004 refer.
Mr. Boateng [holding answer 25 February 2005]: The ID Cards programme has not yet undergone a Gate 1 Review. It has, however, undergone two OGC Gate 0 Reviews, in June 2003 and January 2004 respectively. The traffic light status awarded by these reviews is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as disclosure would be likely to prejudice both the ability of OGC to examine the effectiveness, efficiency and economy with which other Government Departments exercise their functions and also the formulation and development of Government policy. I believe the public interest in disclosure of such information is outweighed by the public interest in non-disclosure.
