As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about how many births per 1,000 population there were in (a) East Sussex and (b) Eastbourne in each of the last 10 years. (68390)
The latest year for which figures are available is 2004; the table below shows the requested figures from 1995 to 2004.
|Live birth rates per 1,000 population 1995-2004, Eastbourne CD and East Sussex|
|Eastbourne||East Suussex( 1)|
|(1) In 1997 Brighton CD and Hove CD ceased to form part of East Sussex. To aid comparability they have been excluded throughout the table|
Mr. Waterson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) live births and (b) still births have occurred at (i) Eastbourne district general hospital and (ii) the Conquest hospital, Hastings, in each of the last 10 years. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question regarding the forecast of the number of live births per 1,000 of population in (a) East Sussex and (b) Eastbourne in the next 5 years. (68399)
The attached table provides the projected crude birth ratein East Sussex and Eastbourne from 2005 to 2010. These projections are based on mid-2003 population estimates and are the latest projections available. They assume that local trends in fertility, mortality and migration over the reference period 1999 to 2003 will continue into the future.
|Table 1: Projected birth rates in East Sussex and Eastbourne, 2005 to 2010|
|Births per 1,000 population|
1. Based on the 2003-based subnational population projections, the latest set of projections currently available.
2. These population projections show an increase in the size of the population and increasing ageing of the population. These factors lead to a projected decrease in birth rates per 1,000 population.
3. All detailed numbers on which rates are based are available on the National Statistics website.

Jim Cousins: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) incidence and (b) survival rate was for bowel cancer in each (i) goverment office region and (ii) strategic health authority area in each of the last three years, broken down by sex and age. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the (a) incidence and (b) survival rate was for bowel cancer in each (i) government office region and (ii) strategic health authority area in each of the last three years, broken down by sex and age. 
The most recent available figures for newly diagnosed cases of colorectal (bowel) cancer registered in England are for the year 2003. Incidence rates by Government Office Region and by sex, in each year between 2001 and 2003, are published in Table 5 of the Annual Reference Volume, Cancer statistics: Registrations, Series MB1. These are available on the National Statistics website:
Numbers of newly diagnosed cases and indirectly standardised ratios (SRRs) are available by Strategic Health Authority and by sex for the years 1993 to 2002. These can be found on the Clinical and Health Outcomes Knowledge Base website:
The latest available one-year and five-year survival rates by Government Office Region and Strategic Health Authority for cancer of the colon, are for adult patients diagnosed during 1995-1997 and followed up to the end of 2002. These were published on the National Statistics website on 21st April 2005, and are available at:
Figures are not available for colorectal (bowel) cancer or cancer of the rectum. Figures by age are only available at England level.
Mrs. Villiers: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what (a) research and (b) other information was used to inform his conclusions regarding the number of people affected by Clause 157 and Schedule 20 of the Finance (No. 2) Bill; 
Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what requirements have been placed on HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in relation to accessibility of its customer-facing offices to public transport; and what assessment HMRC made of the number of buses passing within 100 yards of (a) the existing St. James's street office and (b) the proposed St. Cross office each hour during the working day in respect of the transfer of the Newport, Isle of Wight, office to new premises. 
Dawn Primarolo: HMRC consideredand balanceda number of factors when considering the new location for the Newport, Isle of Wight inquiry centre. Among the factors considered were accessibility for customers and the availability of suitable accommodation.
Mr. Timms: We do not have data for the exact years requested. However, for the years 1995 and 2004, the number of employees covered by public service final salary schemes, which include the civil service, NHS employees, teachers, armed forces, police officers, fire fighters and local government employees were 3.9 and 5 million respectively. These figures do not include employees in public corporations, as information about their schemes is not centrally held.
Increases in public sector employment have been concentrated in priority areas and focused on frontline delivery. However, there are other factors such as increases in the proportion of part-time employees opting to join public service schemes.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his estimate is of the number of cases of prostate cancer in each English county for each year from 1990-91 to 2006-07; and if he will make a statement. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the estimate is of the number of cases of prostate cancer in each English county for each year from 1990-91 to 2006-07.
