As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the cancer mortality rates were in each of the last 30 years. (93938)
The most recent year for which figures are available is 2004. The attached table shows the age-standardised death rate from cancer in England and Wales for the years 1975 to 2004.
|Death rates( 1) from cancer( 2) , England and Wales, 1975 to 2004( 3)|
|Death rate per 100,000 population|
|(1) Rate per 100,000 population standardised to the European Standard Population. (2) Selected using the International Classification of Diseases, Eighth Revision (ICD-8) codes 140-207 for the years 1975 to 1978, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 140-208 for the years 1979 to 2000, and Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes C00-C97 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 changes 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 1975 to 1992 and for occurrences of death in each calendar year from 1993 onwards. * Mortality statistics: Cause 1984.

Grant Shapps: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much was spent by (a) his Department, (b) its agencies and (c) its non-departmental public bodies in respect of hotel and other similar privately-provided accommodation (i) in the UK and (ii) abroad for (A) Ministers, (B) staff and (C) other persons in each year since 2001-02. 
John Healey: The available information is presented in the table. In most cases, the bodies accounting systems do not record accommodation costs separately, so the figures are for subsistence, which includes accommodation and associated allowances for meals. Therefore further analysis could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Information relating to overseas travel by Ministers is published on an annual basis. Information for the period 2 May 1997 to 31 March 2006 is available in the Library of the House. Information for the financial year 2006-07 will be published after the end of the current financial year.
|(1) Treasury figures include Ministers, staff and other persons. Treasury subsistence costs for 2001-02 cannot be disaggregated from travel costs.|
(2) OGCbuying.solutions figures are for accommodation only, excluding meals, including both UK and overseas accommodation.
(3) The amounts for The Royal Mint and The Valuation Office Agency include both UK and overseas subsistence.
(4) HM Revenue and Customs figures include travel costs of the former HM Customs and Excise which cannot be disaggregated from subsistence.
(5) The figures for National Savings and Investments are the estimated cost of both UK and Overseas travel and subsistence.
(6) GAD are unable to provide any data covering financial years 2001-02 and 2002-03.
