As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the five year survival rates were for lymphoma in each of the last 21 years. (142937)
The latest available five-year survival rates for selected major cancers in England are for adult patients (aged 15-99 years) diagnosed during 1998-2001 and followed up to the end of 2003.
Survival was calculated for Hodgkin's disease and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma separately. Survival rates for patients diagnosed between 1986 and 2001 are given in the table below.
|Five-year age-standardised( 1) relative survival (percentage) for adult patients( 2) diagnosed during 1986-2001 by selected cancers( 3) , by sex|
|1986-1990 (England and Wales)||1991-1995 (England and Wales)||1996-1999 (England and Wales)||1998-2001 (England)|
|(1) As cancer survival varies with age at diagnosis, the relative rates for all ages (15-99) have been age-standardised to control for changes in the age profile of cancer patients over time, thus making them comparable with previously published figures. (2) Aged 15-99 years. (3) Cancers registered in from 1995 are defined by codes in the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD10). Therefore, Hodgkin's disease is defined by code C81 and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by codes C82-C85. Cancers registered before 1995 are defined by codes in the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD9). Therefore, Hodgkin's disease is defined by code 201 and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by codes 200 and 202.|
John Healey: The Government responded to a number of Sir Michael's findings in Budget 2007. His work also played a major contribution in the development of the Local Government White Paper, which is being implemented through the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill. His report and recommendations will continue to inform the development of Government policy.
Mr. Timms: Information on total identifiable expenditure per capita for each region of England and for the UK is set out in the HM Treasury publication, Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) 2007, May 2007. This provides outturn data from 2001-02 to 2005-06 and is available at:
Mr. Meale: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much HM Revenue and Customs spent on consultants in each of the last two years, broken down by (a) division, (b) area and (c) type of work commissioned. 
Dawn Primarolo: During the year 2005-06 HMRC spent a total of £106,000,000 on consultancy requirements across the categories of Business, HR, Legal and IT consultancy. At this time the two former departments (HM Customs and Excise and Inland Revenue) were mid-transformation and merging systems and procedures. HMRC accounting function for this period does not enable us to identify the division (directorate) who commissioned the work.
Mr. Meale: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 27 February 2007, Official Report, columns 1312-3W, on Revenue and Customs: Mansfield, what the costs were for April 2006 to April 2007. 
|April to March||Cost (net of VAT) (£)|
This cost is made up of the PFI unitary charge for the provision (by Mapeley) of the serviced accommodation at this address, the business rates and the utilities for the year. The additional cost over the figure previously reported on 27 February 2007 is the March utilities; this was not available at that time.
