Helen Jones: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the economic case for the use of care vouchers to help employees with caring responsibilities to purchase additional care and support for the person for whom they provide care. 
Ed Balls: Owing to the many factors, such as parental contributions and Government endowments, which affect the final value of a child trust fund account we are unable to provide a single estimate. The child trust fund calculator website at http://www.childtrustfund.gov.uk/templates/Calculator__ 1250.aspx can be used to provide an estimated final value for the individual circumstances of a given child.
Sir Gerald Kaufman: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he will reply to the letters of 23 August 2006 and 11 September 2006 from the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton on Mrs. Sharun J. Palin. 
I understand that the Financial Services Authority plans to make the rules and guidance implementing the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) in two new FSA Handbook sourcebooks (GENPRU and BIPRU) at the FSA Board meeting on
25 October. The legal instruments should be available on the FSAs website from 27 October. There are a small number of transitional provisions, which, because of their complexity, the FSA plans to make as separate legal instruments at the November meeting of the FSA Board.
Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the cost to (a) (i) HM Revenue and Customs and (ii) charities of processing Gift Aid and (b) the Exchequer of Gift Aid tax relief; and how much in the period was (A) reimbursed to charities and (B) retained by higher-rate taxpayers in the last 12 months for which information is available. 
Ed Balls: HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) does not distinguish the costs of processing Gift Aid from its other activities in relation to charities and charitable giving and does not have information available to identify the cost of processing Gift Aid by charities.
Details of Gift Aid relief reimbursed to charities and retained by higher-rate taxpayers is available to the public on the HMRC website at http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/charities/menu.htm. Provisional figures for 2005-06 show total repayments to charities under Gift Aid of £728 million and £180 million of Gift Aid relief for higher-rate taxpayers.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the Departments correspondence dated 4 October 2004, reference 2006/05 100642, why HM Revenue and Customs has not given a substantive response to the letter of 15 May 2006 from the hon. Member for Yeovil; and if he will make a statement. 
Dawn Primarolo: Neither HMRC nor the Treasury have a record of having received this letter. My officials have asked the hon. Members office on more than one occasion for a copy of the letter, but it has not yet been forthcoming.
Jim Cousins: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the mid-year estimates made in (a) 2003, (b) 2004 and (c) 2005 were of the population in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne; and what the estimates of future population were for each year. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question about what the mid year estimates made in (a) 2003, (b) 2004 and (c) 2005 were of the population in the City of Newcastle upon Tyne; and what the estimates of future population based on them were for each year. (95409)
The attached table provides the requested data for mid-2003, mid-2004 and mid-2005 and 2004-based projections for 2006 to 2010. In addition, projections for 2015, 2020 and 2025 are also shown to indicate future projected trend.

|Newcastle upon Tyne|
|(1 )The population projections shown in this table are taken from the 2004-based subnational population projections, the latest set of projections currently available. Therefore they are not consistent with the 2005 mid year estimates and there is a discontinuity in the series as presented between years 2005 and 2006. Source: Office for National Statistics|
Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to permit local authorities to use tax incentive financing for (a) regeneration and (b) infrastructure projects; and if he will make a statement. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many teenage pregnancies there have been in Suffolk in each year since 1997, broken down by local authority area. (95458)
Available figures on conceptions are estimates of the number of pregnancies that resulted in a live birth, stillbirth or termination.
Number of teenage conceptions in each Suffolk local authority area for the years 1997-2004 (the most recent year for which figures are available), are shown in the attached table.
|Number of teenage conceptions by local authority area in Suffolk, 1997 to 2004|
|Area of usual residence||1997||1998||1999||2000||2001||2002||2003||2004|
