Sustainable Development Action Plan

Mr. Llwyd: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what arrangements he has made for the launch of the Treasury Sustainable Development Action Plan; and whether he intends to make an oral statement to the House on the contents of the plan. [41182]

John Healey: The Treasury intend to publish a sustainable development action plan shortly. We plan to publish this on the HM Treasury website.

Taxation

Mr. Paice: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer in what circumstances a taxpayer would be liable to a surcharge for non-payment of a January instalment if the completed forms were received by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) before 30 December but no calculation had been issued by HMRC. [41507]

Dawn Primarolo: A surcharge of 5 per cent. is added to tax payable but still unpaid 28 days after the due date for payment (31 January). A further surcharge of 5 per cent. is added to tax payable but still unpaid six months after the due date. 30 September is the filing deadline for paper self assessment tax returns if the taxpayer wants HMRC to calculate their tax and tell them how much to pay by 31 January of the following year. After 30 September HMRC will still calculate the tax but do not guarantee to do it in time for a calculation to go out to the taxpayer for the payment date of 31 January.

Where self assessment tax returns are filed online the tax is calculated automatically thereby informing the taxpayer how much to pay by 31 January.

Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his latest estimate is of the share of gross income paid in tax by (a) each income decile and (b) each major household type in each year from 1996–97 to 2005–06, broken down by each major tax; and if he will make a statement. [41398]

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

Mr. Hurd: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the average earnings of full-time employees in the constituency of Ruislip-Northwood were in April in each year since 2000. [41043]

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

Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 16 January 2006:

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question to ask what the average earnings of full time employees in the constituency of Ruislip-Northwood are in April of each year since 2000 (41043)

Currently average earnings are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), and are provided for full time employees on adult rates whose pay for the survey period was not affected by absence. This is the standard definition used for ASHE. The ASHE 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 by parliamentary constituency by place of work from 2000 to 2005. These statistics are also available on the National Statistics website at: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/StatBase/Product.asp?vlnk=13101
 
16 Jan 2006 : Column 1176W
 

The ASHE, carried out in April of each year, is the most comprehensive source of earnings information in the United Kingdom. It is a one per cent sample of all employees who are members of pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) schemes.

Notes:
Guide to quality:
1. The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality.
2. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CV e.g. for an average of 200 with a CV of 5%, we would expect the population average to be within the range 190 to 210.

Mr. Hurd: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much revenue was raised from personal taxation in the constituency of Ruislip-Northwood in (a) 1997 and (b) the last financial year for which figures are available. [41044]
