Published information is available on the total number of persons removed as a result of deportation action for years up to 2002 in the Control of Immigration: Statistics United Kingdom Command Paper.

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question on what the level of average income was in each of the last 30 years at todays prices. (93511)
Average income at todays prices is taken to be real households disposable income which is shown in the attached table. Further data are available from table 2.4 (Income, product and spending per head) in Economic Trends which is available at the following address: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/StatBase/Product.asp?vlnk=308&Pos=&ColRank=1&Rank=422
Average real households disposable income is calculated using the total resident population for the United Kingdom
The estimates for real household disposable income is the national accounts series for the combined household and non-profit institutions serving households (NPISH) sectors. Estimates for households alone are not available. NPISHs are legal entities which are principally engaged in the production of non-market services for households and whose main resources are voluntary contributions by households. For example, charities; relief and aid organisations; educational establishments; Trade Unions; Professional Associations, Political Parties and Religious Organisations, and Sports Clubs and Associations.

As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the (a) breast cancer in women and (b) lung cancer in men death rates were in each of the last 20 years. (93837)
The most recent year for which figures are available is 2004. The table below shows the age-standardised death rate from breast cancer for females and lung cancer for males in England and Wales for the years 1985 to 2004.
|Death rates( 1) from lung cancer in males and breast cancer in females( 2) , England and Wales, 1985 to 2004( 3)|
|Death rate per 100,000 population|
|Lung cancer in males||Breast cancer in females|
|(1) Rate per 100,000 population standardised to the European Standard Population. (2) Selected using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 162 for lung cancer and 174 for female breast cancer for the years 1985 to 2000, and Tenth Revision (1CD-10) codes C33-C34 for lung cancer and C50 for breast cancer for 2001 onwards. Between 1984 and 1992 a different interpretation of ICD-9 selection Rule 3 was used to code underlying cause of death in England and Wales to that used internationally. This change means that comparisons between this period and years before and after, should be interpreted with caution. The impact of the change on mortality statistics was analysed and reported in annual mortality publications in 1984 and 1994. *The introduction of ICD-l0 for coding cause of death in 2001 also means that figures are not completely comparable with data for years before this date. Comparisons between the data before and after 2001 should therefore also be interpreted with caution. An article specifically examining the effect of the change in classification for cancer trends was published in Health Statistics Quarterly 23. ** More information about these change can be found on the National Statistics website at www.statistics.gov.uk/icdl0mortality. (3) Figures are for registrations of death in each calendar year from 1985 to 1992 and for occurrences of death in each calendar year from 1993 onwards. * Mortality statistics: Cause 1984.
