Mrs. Curtis-Thomas: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the survival rates for (a) lung, (b) breast, (c) testicular, (d) prostate, (e) ovarian, (f) bowel and (g) other cancers in the most recent period for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the survival rates for (a) lung, (b) breast, (c) testicular, (d) prostate, (e) ovarian, (f) bowel and (g) other cancers have been in the most recent period for which figures are available. (45201)
Cancer survival rates are only produced for specific cancers and are calculated by combining several years of diagnosis. For this reason no single figure is available for the category 'other cancers'.
Survival rates for 21 common cancers among adult patients in England diagnosed during 19982001 and followed up to the end of 2003 (covering about 90 per cent. of all cancer cases in these patients) were published on the National Statistics website on 9 May 2005, and are available at: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/statbase/Expodata/Spreadsheets/D8982.xls

John Cummings: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) private sector (i) manufacturing and (ii) service sector and (b) public sector jobs there were in Easington constituency in each year since 2000. 
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics for the United Kingdom of public sector employment from a quarterly survey of public sector organisations. However, estimates at local area level are not available.
Information at local area level is available from the annual local area Labour Force Survey (LFS) of individual people in households. However, in this source, the categorisation of employment in the public or private sector depends upon the responses from the individuals interviewed. As reported by QMS in October 2005 in the publication Public Sector Employment Trends", some individuals tend to misreport private sector employment as being in the public sector hence leading to overestimates of the share of public sector employment.
With this reservation about the data quality, the attached table shows the number of persons in private sector employment, by the specified splits, and for the public sector, for people resident in the Easington constituency as shown by the annual local area LFS for the 12 month periods ending February 2001 to February 2004.

Mr. Prisk: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate his Department has made of the change in receipts from (a) VAT, (b) corporation tax and (c) national insurance contributions from businesses within the existing London Congestion Charge area since its introduction. 
Mr. Newmark: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 11 November 2005, Official Report, column 775W, on pensions, how allowance was made for future improvement in life expectancy in calculating the estimates of the accrued liability for unfunded public sector pensions. 
Mr. Des Browne: Significant allowance was made for future improvement in mortality, drawing on national population projections and mortality studies undertaken by the actuarial profession. The key actuarial assumptions used to value the liabilities of individual schemes are set out in relevant reports by the scheme actuary and they have, for example, been reported in their respective financial statements such as resource accounts.
