Mr. Hoban: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what payments have been made by HM Revenue and Customs for opinion polling in the last three years; which company received each payment; on what date; and what the purpose was of the polling concerned in each case. 
Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether HM Revenue and Customs has recently changed its policy of providing home visits to taxpayers under its Targeted Education, Enabling and Leverage scheme. 
Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what savings have been identified as a direct result of the HM Revenue and Customs scheme Angels and Demons; and how much has been spent on the scheme. 
In October 2006, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs introduced a new scheme
designed to encourage staff to submit proposals for working more efficiently and effectively, to enable the best proposals to be rolled out quickly across the Department, and in the process to develop the capabilities and initiative of the staff involved.
The scheme is expected to deliver a 110 per cent. return over two years, in terms of both efficiency savings and greater operational effectiveness. To date, approximately £850,000 has been invested in the implementation of proposals and projects arising from the scheme, which it is expected would deliver a return of approximately £935,000 over the next two years.
Mr. Crabb: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what methodology will be used in producing the local economic impact assessments in relation to decision-making on the reorganisation of HM Revenue and Customs. 
This information will be used to assess the impact of potential closure of an office on the local community, customers, staff and business delivery. Each location will be considered on its individual factors before a decision is made.
Dawn Primarolo: Inheritance tax business property relief has long been targeted on trading businesses by excluding those of an investment nature. Whether any particular business qualifies for relief will depend on all the facts of the particular case.
Chris Ruane: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many and what percentage of the population in each constituency of the UK are first generation Irish people, broken down by region and listed in descending order of percentage. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question how many and what percentage of the population in each constituency of the UK are first generation Irish people, broken down by region and listed in descending order of percentage. (112095)
As there is no standard ONS definition of first generation Irish we have prepared figures for those people whose Country of Birth was Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland or Ireland part not stated but whose usual residence was in England, Wales or Scotland. The figures have been broken down by Government Office Region.
The figures have been extracted from Country of Birth Table KS05 on the CD Supplement to the Key Statistics for Parliamentary Constituencies, which is available in the House of Commons Library. For convenience the resulting extract has also been lodged in the House of Commons Library.
