As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question concerning how many people in (a) England and (b) Dorset died as a result of kidney failure in 2005. (68311)
The latest year for which figures are available is 2004. Numbers of deaths in 2004 where kidney failure was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate are included in the attached table.
Kidney failure can be the result of a number of different conditions or diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or infections. In most cases the underlying cause of death will be one of these causes rather than kidney failure. To provide more
complete figures, numbers of deaths with a mention of kidney failure have therefore been provided rather than deaths where this was the underlying cause.

Mr. Paice: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer in how many cases HM Revenue and Customs has discovered that taxpayers have been wrongly receiving married person's tax allowance in each year since it was abolished. 
Dawn Primarolo [holding answer 10 May 2006]: Married Couple's Allowance was abolished from 2000-01 but only for those born after 6 April 1935. Information is not available about the numbers of taxpayers who may have claimed and been given the allowance incorrectly.
Norman Baker: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for North Devon (Nick Harvey), of 26 April 2006, Official Report, column 1173W, on ministerial flights, whether air passenger duty is payable on flights other than commercial flights taken by (a) Ministers and (b) members of the Royal Family. 
John Healey: In the event of Ministers and members of the Royal Family taking other than commercial flights, it is likely that they would use the Royal Air Force. Since the Royal Air Force is not deemed to be an Air Transport Undertaking under the Air Navigation Order 1982, its flights are not liable to air passenger duty.
Dawn Primarolo: Currently travellers and vehicles arriving at the port of Newhaven arrive directly from another EU member state. As declarations are only required from individuals arriving from outside the EU, no declaration point is required and no Red Point telephone is installed.
Mr. Dunne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of pensioners in occupational pension schemes who will opt out of private healthcare provision in order to avoid it being taxed as a benefit in kind following the recent changes in the tax treatment of such provision. 
Mr. Dunne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the revenue to be raised in the tax year 2006-07 from the decision to treat employer contributions to private medical schemes for people in retirement as a benefit in kind. 
Ed Balls: A Regulatory Impact Assessment (Regulatory Impact Assessment for Simplifying the taxation of pensions Update) was published on22 March 2006 setting out the Government's assessment of the impact of the changes to the new simplified regime for pensions taxation introduced in the 2006 Budget. This is available at www.hmrc.gov.uk/ria/ria-pensions-simplification.pdf. The Government estimate that pensions tax simplification will havean overall cost to the Exchequer building up to£250 million per year.
Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many individuals paid stamp dutyon (a) residential and (b) commercial property transactions, in (i) each Government office region,(ii) Wales, (iii) Scotland and (iv) Northern Ireland in each financial year since 1996-97. 
Ed Balls: The estimated number of residential and non-residential transactions, where stamp duty was payable on account of the value of the transaction being higher than the stamp duty threshold, is given in the following tables for the years and regions for which information is available. The stamp duty threshold for residential transactions was £60,000 up to 16 March 2005 and £120,000 from 17 March 2005. For non-residential transactions the threshold was £60,000 up to 30 November 2003 and £150,000 from 1 December 2003 to the end of 2004-05. Residential transactions from 30 November 2001 with values above £60,000 and up to £150,000 in designated disadvantaged areas were relieved from stamp duty and have been excluded from these figures. However non-residential transactions which were valued above the threshold but paid no duty due to the operation of reliefs (e.g. disadvantaged area relief, charitable relief) are included in the table because reliable estimates of all relieved transactions are not available.
