Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of the Integrated Drug Treatment System funding for drug treatment has been allocated to HMP Peterborough in 2006-07; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Sutcliffe [holding answer 7 December 2006]: The Home Office and the Department of Health are funding £12 million in 2006-07 for improved clinical drug treatment for prisoners. A first wave of 17 prisons was selected to implement the full IDTS programme; and a further 28 prisons selected to utilise the funds to improve drug services. HMP Peterborough was not included in these first 45 prisons.
The first-wave prisons were selected to ensure a spread between geographical areas, male and female prisons and public and contracted prisons; to involve all Government Office and Prison Service regions; and thereby provide a broad base for evaluation. These prisons were also chosen because evidence showed an overriding need to improve the quality of their clinical drug services.

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what the average household income was in City of York (a) parliamentary constituency and (b) council area in each year since 1992 for (i) working, (ii) retired and (iii) unemployed households; 
(2) what the average income was of (a) males and (b) females working (i) full-time and (ii) part-time in City of York (A) parliamentary constituency and (B) council area in each year since 1992. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Questions asking:
(1) what the average household income was in the City of York (a) parliamentary constituency and (b) council area in each year since 1992 for (i) working, (ii) retired and (iii) unemployed households (106679) and;
(2) what the average income was of (a) males and (b) females working (i) full-time and (ii) part-time in City of York (A) parliamentary constituency and (B) council area in each year since 1992. (106680)
(1) Estimates of household income which include income from earnings, benefits, pensions, investment income and other sources, are generally based on household surveys. The largest of these is the Family Resources Survey which has an annual sample in the UK of around 28,000 households. This is sufficient to produce estimates of household income at national and regional level, but not for smaller areas.
However, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has recently published estimates of household income for wards for 2001/02 only. These estimates are based on a statistical model and are
experimental statisticsthis means they have been developed in accordance with the principles set out in the National Statistics Code of Practice but have yet to be fully accredited as National Statistics. These ward level estimates can be used to provide estimates of average household income for areas made up of wards.
The estimates are mean net equivalised incomes. Equivalised household incomes are standardized to take into account different sizes and compositions of households. The standard household is deemed to be a two adult household with no children, and so these equivalised incomes can be interpreted as indicating a standard of living that would be achieved by a standard household with that income. The estimates are net of income tax, national insurance contributions, contributions to occupational pension schemes, and council tax
Using these model-based estimates of household income, it is estimated that for the City of York parliamentary constituency in 2001/02, mean net income before housing costs was £360 per week, while after housing costs it was £320. For the City of York council area, the mean net income before housing costs was £374 per week, while after housing costs it was £339.
(2) ONS does not produce statistics on the average income of individuals, however, average earnings are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), and are provided for employees on adult rates whose pay for the survey period was not affected by absence. This is the standard definition used for ASHE. The ASHE does not collect data on the self employed and people who do unpaid work. ASHE is only available from 1997. The attached tables show Average Gross Weekly Earnings for the parliamentary constituency of City of York, and for the Unitary Authority council area of York, for the years 1997 to 2006.
