Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 15 June 2005, Official Report, column 386W, on council tax, what criteria the Valuations Office Agency will use to assess whether to enter a property for inspection. 
Dawn Primarolo: Valuation Office Agency staff will make arrangements to undertake internal inspections of properties only where information cannot be gathered by an external inspection or through other sources.
Mr. Hands: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the average gross weekly wage of full-time workers in (a) Hammersmith and Fulham, (b) Greater London and (c) the United Kingdom was in the most recent year for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question what the average gross earnings of full time workers in (a) Hammersmith and Fulham (b) Greater London and (c) the United Kingdom were in the most recent year for which figures are available. (10901)
Average earnings are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings and are provided for employees on adult rates of pay whose pay was unaffected by absence during the pay period, by their place of work. This is the standard definition used for Annual Survey of Hours and Earning tables. The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings does not collect data on the self employed and people who do unpaid work.
I attach a table showing the average gross weekly earnings for full time employees in Hammersmith and Fulham, Greater London and the United Kingdom in 2004. These statistics are also available on the National Statistics website on table 7:
The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings, carried out in April of each year, is the most comprehensive source of earnings information in the United Kingdom. It has a one per cent sample of all employees.
|Median||CV percentage(9)||Mean||CV percentage(9)|
|Hammersmith and Fulham||548.3||4.4||650.7||3.2|
9. Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what discussions he has had with the (a) Police Service of Northern Ireland and (b) Irish Government on combating organised crime. 
Mr. Hain: The Government are committed to the restoration of a fully inclusive, devolved, power-sharing Executive in Northern Ireland at the earliest possible opportunity, which is, in turn, dependent on a complete and verifiable end to all paramilitary and criminal activity, and the decommissioning of illegally held weapons.
