The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question concerning how many deaths there were of people in the age group (a) under one, (b) one to five, (c) six to 10, (d) 11 to 17, (e) 17 to 24, (f) 25 to 35, (g) 36 to 40, (h) 41 to 50, (i) 51 to 59, (j) 60 to 64, (k) 65 to 69, (1) 70 to 74, (m) 75 to 79, (n) 80 to 84, (o) 85 to 89 and (p) 90 years and over from (i) 1st April to 30th September 1997, (ii) 1st October to 30th April 1998, (iii) 1st April to 30th September 2001, (iv) 1st October to 30th April 2002, (v) 1st April to 30th September 2004 and (vi) 1st October to 30th April 2005; and what the death rate per 1,000 was in each case. I am replying in her absence. (72160)
The latest year for which figures are available is 2004. Numbers of deaths for the age groups and time periods requested are included in the table below. Age group 18 to 24 has been used to avoid double counting deaths with age group 11 to 17.
ONS does not routinely calculate death rates for sub-annual periods. Annual death rates by sex and five-year age groups can be found in Table 4 in the publication series, DH2, Mortality Statistics, Cause. Copies of these can be found in the library of the House and, from 1999 onwards, on the National Statistics website at:
|Numbers of deaths in England and Wales by age group and selected time periods, April 1997 to September 2004( 1)|
|Number of deaths|
|Age group||1 April to 30 September 1997||1 October to 30 April 1998||1 April to 30 September 2001||1 October to 30 April 2002||1 April to 30 September 2004|

Mr. Oaten: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of people who will retire in the next 12 months without being told what pension they will receive due to HM Revenue and Customs not recording national insurance contributions. 
All people reaching pension age will receive a Retirement Pension pack from DWP four months prior to reaching their pension age. This pack includes a State Pension forecast detailing the amounts of State
Pension they will receive based on the amount of national insurance contributions recorded. If the amount shown in the State Pension forecast is not what an individual expects, DWP's Pension Forecasting Team will advise the customer to contact HM Revenue and Customs who will check and, where appropriate, update the national insurance record to ensure that the correct State Pension is paid. Relatively few people are affected in this way.
Mr. Meacher: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 4 May 2006, Official Report, column 1742W, on non-fossil fuels, if he will summarise the legal argument which led him to conclude that funds in the non-fossil fuel obligation fund were hereditary revenues. 
John Healey: The legal advice concerned was that the funds representing the non-fossil fuel obligation surplus are hereditary revenues and as such are required by law to be paid in the consolidated fund.
Mrs. Villiers: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what account the Office for National Statistics has taken in its analysis of the public sector net debt of the guarantees given to the International Olympic Committee to underwrite the Olympic Games. 
John Healey: Under reforms to the public spending framework introduced in 2000 the UK Government are one of the few in the world that have a statutory obligation to report liabilities in the same way as private companies, and whose accounts are subject to independent audit.
Contingent liabilities, such as those referred to in the question, are reported in departmental accounts on the same basis as UK GAAP, as well as to Parliament. They are defined as being contingent on an event, or a set of events, whose likelihood of occurring has been accepted by independent auditors as being remote. They are not, by their definition, actual liabilities, and so it would not be right to include them in measures of public sector net debt.

Chris Ruane: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many and what percentage of the electorate were registered in each (a) ward and (b) constituency in (i) England, (ii) Scotland, (iii) Wales and (iv) Northern Ireland in each of the past 10 years, broken down by region. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning how many and what percentage of the electorate were registered in each (a) ward and (b) constituency in (i) England, (ii) Scotland, (iii) Wales and (iv)
Northern Ireland in each of the past 10 years, broken down by region. I am replying in her absence. (72591)
The information requested is not readily available on a comparable basis for the ten year period and could only be produced at disproportionate cost.
Information on the percentage of the electorate who were registered is not available for the ten year period because population estimates for wards are available only for 2001 and 2002. The information for these years has been provided previously in response to earlier Parliamentary Questions (No. 38272, 20 Dec 2005, Column 2809w, No. 41187, 19th January 2006, Column 1491w).
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question regarding the number of electors in each ward in Wrexham in each of the last 10 years. I am replying in her absence. (72670)
