Mr. Willetts: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much was paid to (a) male and (b) female recipients by HM Revenue and Customs aged (i) 18 to 25, (ii) 26 to 30, (iii) 31 to 40, (iv) 41 to 50, (v) 51 to 60, (vi) 61 to 70, (vii) 71 to 80 and (viii) over 80 in the last period for which figures are available. 
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer on how many occasions HM Revenue and Customs provided access to personal tax information to another Government Department or agency in
2005-06; to which Departments or agencies access was provided; and what the reasons were for providing the access. 
Dawn Primarolo: HM Revenue and Customs discloses information gathered in carrying out its functions only where there is a statutory power to disclose. There is a wide range of statutory powers to disclose to other Government Departments and agencies. Disclosures are made for the purposes set out in those statutory powers. The information requested is not available.
A table showing total amounts of stamp duty land tax arising in 2005-06 from residential transactions, and numbers of transactions, for counties, will be published in the summer. Reliable information is not available for earlier years.
Norman Baker: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) under what circumstances his Department regards registration as a voter at a UK address as evidence of (a) residency and (b) domicile in the UK for tax purposes; and what account is taken of electoral registration in determining an individuals liability for tax in the UK; 
(2) how many individuals resident in the UK claim non-domiciliary status for UK tax purposes; and what account is taken of the relationship between residency and domiciliary status for UK tax purposes; 
Dawn Primarolo: Registration as a voter at a UK address is part of the evidence considered in relation to whether an individual is resident or domiciled in the UK for tax purposes and any consequent liability to tax in the UK.
Approximately 110,000 individuals claimed non-domicile tax status through self assessment tax returns
in the year 2004-05. Liability to UK tax depends on the residence, ordinary residence and domicile status of individuals.
Keith Vaz: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what change there was in unemployment rates for (a) white, (b) mixed Indian, (c) Pakistani, (d) Bangladeshi, (e) other Asian, (f) Black Caribbean, (g) Black African and (h) other ethnic groups in each year for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about the unemployment rates for (a) white, (b) mixed Indian, (c) Pakistani, (d) Bangladeshi (e) other Asian, (f) Black Caribbean, (g) Black African and (h) other ethnic groups for which figures are available.

The table overleaf gives the unemployment rates by ethnicity. These rates are not seasonally adjusted. They are published each quarter in Table 10 of the Labour Market Statistics Historical Quarterly Supplement available on the ONS website:
Comparable estimates are not available for 1998 and 2000, and Q1 (January-March) and Q3 (July-September) for the years 1997-2004.
Estimates are taken from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty. This is particularly true for the unemployment rates of some ethnic groups.
