Environmental Projects

Gregory Barker: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much and what percentage of environmental taxes went to funding environmental projects in 2004–05. [41865]

John Healey: Environmental taxes are not directly hypothecated to environmental spending. Consistent with the principle of shifting the burden of tax from 'goods' to 'bads', environmental taxes such as the Climate Change Levy and Aggregates Levy were introduced with corresponding reductions in employers' national insurance contributions.

External Consultants

Mrs. Villiers: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department has paid since 2004 to external consultants who had previously been employed by the Department in any capacity within the previous five years. [41209]

John Healey: The Treasury made payments totalling £99,561 in the calendar year 2005 to four consultants who are known to be former employees of the department. A central record is not maintained of consultants who are former employees, so this is not necessarily a comprehensive total.

Family Size

Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many families there are with (a) one child, (b) two children, (c) three children, (d) four children, (e) five children, (f) six to 10 children and (g) more than 10 children. [41392]

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

Gross Domestic Product
