As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning how many people who were born in Wales now live in England; and how many who were born in England now live in Wales. (162502)
At the time, of the 2001 Census, there were 609,711 people born in Wales living in England and 589,828 people born in England living in Wales. These figures have been extracted from 2001 Census Table KS05Country of Birth.
Jane Kennedy: HMRC considers the impact of its plans on customers, staff, business efficiency, diversity and the local community before making decisions. The plans are subject to a widespread consultation process with staff, trade unions, MPs, local authorities and other interests. This provides an opportunity for further information to be given to the HMRC review team.
Jane Kennedy: There are no estimates of the value of unutilised indexation relief. Estimates of the cost of the indexation allowance to the exchequer are published in table A3.1 of the 2007 Financial Statement and Budget Report. Estimates for 2007-08 are published in table 7 of the 2007 Tax Ready Reckoner.
Mr. Drew: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will review (a) the upper ceiling on mileage payments for volunteer car drivers of 40p per mile and (b) the threshold of 10,000 miles above which mileage allowances are taxed. 
Jane Kennedy: There is no upper ceiling on mileage payments for volunteer car drivers. HMRC allows volunteers to use the Approved Mileage Allowance Payment (AMAP) rate for convenience, but it is not mandatory and volunteer drivers can claim tax relief for the full cost of motoring by completing a return, if they wish to do so.
Martin Horwood: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many fines were issued for the late return of income tax returns by each tax office in England and Wales in each year from 2000 to 2005; and how many of those fines were subsequently refunded in each of those years. 
Jane Kennedy: I refer the hon. Member to the written reply given on 17( )November 2005, Official Report, column 1517W. The table provides details of penalty notices issued for failure to file self-assessment tax returns by the due date for the latest full years 2005-06 and 2006-07. As stated in the earlier reply, no details are held regarding the numbers of penalties subsequently refunded.
