Chris Ruane: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the electorate was in each parliamentary constituency in the UK in (a) May 1997, (b) June 2001 and (c) May 2005 (i) in total and (ii) broken down for each constituency, ranked according to the size of change in the electorate between 1997 and 2005, showing the ward with the greatest decrease in electorate at the head and the ward with the greatest increase at the bottom of each list. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning the electorate in each Parliamentary Constituency in the UK, in May 1997, June 2001 and May 2005. I am replying in his absence. (168)
Electoral statistics are produced annually. Since 2001 they have been collected with a reference date of 1 December, prior to this they were collected in February each year (and in 2001 there were two collections). Consequently, it is not possible to show data for the exact dates requested. Instead, data are shown for February 1997, February 2001, and December 2004. These are the closest available dates.
Table 1 shows the registered Parliamentary electorate for each Parliamentary Constituency in the UK for the above three dates. Constituencies are ranked by the change between 1997 and 2004. Table 2 shows the same data, but ranked by percentage change between 1997 and 2004.
For Scotland new Constituencies came into being for the 2005 general election. The data shown in Table 1 and 2 are for the 'old' Constituencies. These Constituencies were the same for each of the three years quoted. However, data are also available on the electorate of the 'new' Constituencies and these are shown in Table 3.
For Northern Ireland changes in the electoral arrangements in 2002 resulted in a sharp decline in the number of registered electors. These changes included the requirement to complete individual (rather than household) forms, the requirement to re-register every year, and the requirement to provide personal identification details. This will affect the 2004 figures and comparisons with previous years.
For England and Wales due to the number of Ward changes it is not possible to create a meaningful comparison between 1997 and 2004. It would only be possible to create comparisons between 1997 and 2001 or 2001 and 2004 at disproportionate cost. Table 4, 5, and 6 provide a full list of ward electorates in England for the three years. Table 7, 8, and 9 provide a full list of Ward electorates in Wales.
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning the number of primary school age children there are predicted to be in North East Lincolnshire for the next five academic years. (2041)
Official 2003-based Subnational Population Projections for England were published by the Office for National Statistics in November 2004. Table 1 attached, shows the projected mid-year population of 511 year olds for North East Lincolnshire taken from these projections.

Stewart Hosie: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many businesses in England had a rateable value for non-domestic rate purposes of (a) less than £3,000, (b) £3,000 to £3,999, (c) £4,000 to £4,999, (d) £5,000 to £5,999, (e) £6,000 to £6,999, (f) £7,000 to £7,999 and (g) £8,000 and above in each year since 1991; and what the yield from non-domestic rates was in each category in each year in (i) cash and (ii) real terms.
