Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).
The Department uses the higher Education Initial Participation Rate (HEIPR) to assess progress on increasing first-time participation of English students aged 18-30 in higher education towards 50 per cent.: the latest provisional figure for 2004/05 is 42 percent. The HEIPR is not calculated at constituency level.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many Pakistani and Bangladeshi 18-year-old (a) males and (b) females are not in education, employment or training; and if he will make a statement. 
Jim Knight: The number of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) is measured using estimates from the Department's statistical first release Participation in education, training and employment by 16-18-year-olds in England. These estimates cannot be broken down by ethnic group.
The Youth Cohort Study (YCS), which looks at young people's education and labour market experience, can be used to estimate the proportion of young people who are NEET by certain characteristics. The latest YCS figures estimate that 17 per cent. of Pakistani/Bangladeshi 18-year-olds were NEET in 2006, but it is not possible to derive reliable estimates for males and females within this group. YCS cannot be used to estimate the number of young people NEET.
The Department has a target to reduce the proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds NEET by 2 percentage points by 2010. We will focus particularly on groups of young people who are over represented in the NEET group.
There is a close alignment between poor educational attainment pre-16 and the likelihood of becoming NEET between the ages of 16 and 18. Our 14-19 reforms are aimed at raising attainment levels, and ensuring that as many young people as possible remain in education and training up to the age of 18. This is supported by the Government's Aiming High strategy for raising the academic achievement of minority ethnic pupils includes a programme of targeted work supporting Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Somali and Turkish pupils. The attainment gap is now closing for both Pakistani and Bangladeshi pupils.
Danny Alexander: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the average length of time between the registration of a birth and the receipt of a first instalment of child benefit was for the year 2005-06, broken down by local authority area. 
Ed Balls: The Treasurys accounting system does not separately identify charitable campaigning organisations or think tanks therefore a comprehensive list could be compiled only at disproportionate cost.
Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations his Department received on including measures to improve sports participation and fitness among children in the pre-Budget report; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Timms: Ministers and officials from HM Treasury received no such specific representations for the pre-Budget report. However, representations are regularly received from individuals representing a range of interests in sport including childrens participation.
Mr. Don Foster: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what measures in the pre-Budget report are aimed at improving sports participation and fitness among children; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Timms: There were no measures announced in the pre-Budget report aimed at improving sports participation and fitness among children. However, the Chancellor announced in his speech that the Culture Secretary and Minister for the third sector my hon. Friend the Member for Doncaster, North (Edward Miliband) will be consulting on how a new generation of young people can do more to volunteer in the run up to the Olympics. We will set out details of the consultation in due course.
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people were employed, full-time equivalent, in the civil service and Government agencies in York (a) in total and (b) in the Central Science Laboratory at Sand Hutton in each year since 1992. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning how many people were employed, full-time equivalent, in the Civil Service and government agencies in York (a) in total and (b) in the Central Science Laboratory at Sand Hutton in each year since 1992.

Civil Service employment statistics are published only at the level of the Government Offices for the Regions. In order to provide the information requested for York, an ad hoc analysis has been required. This analysis is based on the Mandate survey which currently provides approximately 90 per cent coverage of Civil Service departments and agencies. For years prior to 2003 the coverage is lower. For comparison purposes, employment numbers for the Yorkshire and Humber region are therefore presented alongside the requested statistics i) as published for the total Civil Service and ii) as available from the Mandate survey.
