Population bases and statistical provision: towards a more flexible future? (To appear in Population Trends on 29 June 2006).
Issues of Population Trends can be accessed at:
This article will present an analysis of the research and consultation into alternative population bases and discusses the options for moving towards more flexible output bases.
An article is due to appear in a forthcoming issue of Population Trends presenting the research into administrative data on housing and the insights that affords into the relationship between housing and population change.
A further article, which reviews international experience of the Cohort Component method, is due to appear in a forthcoming issue of Population Trends. This method is the main one used by Census taking countries to produce population estimates during the intercensal period.

Mr. Hollobone: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he hasreceived regarding the inheritance tax treatment of accumulation and maintenance trusts and interest in possession trusts. 
Adam Afriyie: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the breakdown by (a) local authority area and (b) nationality of migrants was allocated by the Office for National Statistics to mid-year estimates in each year from 1991 to 2004. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question about what breakdown by (a) local authority area and (b) nationality of migrants was allocated by the Office for National Statistics to mid-year estimates in each year from 1991 to 2004.1 am replying in her absence. (72951)
I am placing a table in the House of Commons Library, which gives a breakdown of the migration component of the mid-year estimates by local authority for mid-2000 to mid-2004. Figures for the migration component are not available separately for the earlier years requested. Published tables for earlier years showing 'Natural Change' and 'Migration and other changes' are available on the National Statistics website:
The migration estimates used in the mid-year estimates are not disaggregated by nationality.
The components of the mid-year estimates are estimated in as robust a manner as possible given available data sources. The total international migration figures shown in this table are produced for the express purpose of producing the mid-year estimates. Figures for the internal migration in the table may also differ slightly from those published elsewhere due to rounding and constraining effects.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) public speeches and (b) official visits (i) he and (ii) the Chief Secretary to the Treasury has made on departmental business since5 May 2005.

Friend the Member for Leicester, East (Keith Vaz) on 16 March 2006, Official Report, column 2411W. The total cost of subsistence for the Treasury in the last three financial years was as follows. The figures include Ministers, special advisers and civil servants, and meals as well as overnight accommodation costs.
Further details, including analysis of costs by destination and by class of hotel, could be provided only at disproportionate cost. All travel is undertaken in accordance with the rules set out in the Ministerial Code, the Civil Service Management Code and the Code of Conduct for Special Advisers, which include requirements for travel arrangements to be efficient and cost-effective.
Our hotel providers use their purchasing power to negotiate better rates and room allocations for their Government clients. These arrangements are available to all staff, both civil servants and special advisers.
