Dr. Julian Lewis: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 27 November 2007, Official Report, column 394W, on Members: correspondence, whether Treasury Ministers written answers which cite earlier replies enclose hard copies of earlier replies, referred to as standard practice in the answer of 26 November 2007, Official Report, column 1133W, on written questions. 
Angela Eagle: Treasury Ministers observe the practice of enclosing earlier answers which are cited in our written answers to parliamentary questions. My answer of 27 November 2007, Official Report, column 394W, referred to a reply which the hon. Gentleman had received the previous day from the Deputy Leader of the House and a copy of that reply was enclosed with my answer.
Mr. Boris Johnson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many and what percentage of London residents (a) with and (b) without British citizenship migrated to (i) other regions of the UK and (ii) outside the UK in each of the last 10 years. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question asking how many and what percentage of London residents (a) with British citizenship and (b) without British citizenship migrated to (i) other regions of the UK and (ii) outside the UK in each of the last 10 years. (169671)
The mid-year population estimates of people living in London are not available broken down by citizenship over the last ten years. Also, data are not available that show migration by citizenship within and between the regions of the UK.
However, data are available that show estimates of emigration by British and non-British citizens from Greater London to areas outside the UK in each of the last ten years (Table 1). These estimates are based on the International Passenger Survey (IPS) and are also shown as a percentage of each mid-year population estimate for Greater London.
The IPS is a sample survey and, like all survey sources, is subject to sampling and non-sampling error.

|A ll persons||Estimate ( T housand)||Percentage of MYE||Estimate ( T housand)||Percentage of MYE||Estimate ( T housand)||Percentage of MYE|
|(1) The Government Office Region of London definition has been used, i.e. Greater London.|
(2) MYE are the revised mid year population estimates and are rounded to the nearest thousand. Emigration data are for calendar year, rounded to the nearest thousand.
(3) Emigrants are the International Passenger Survey estimates for calendar year, rounded to the nearest thousand.
(4) The international migration estimates have been revised using a consistent methodology based primarily on the Labour Force Survey (LFS) to allocate migration to the constituent countries of the UK, and to Government Office Regions within England.
1. Figures have been rounded independently and may not add to totals.
2. Percentages have been calculated on unrounded data.
Mr. Boris Johnson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many and what percentage of British citizens migrated from other regions of the UK to London in each of the last 10 years, broken down by (a) sex and (b) age. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question asking how many and what percentage of British citizens migrated from other regions of the UK to London in each of the last 10 years, broken down by (a) sex and (b) age. (169672)
Estimates of British citizens migrating from other regions of the UK to London are not available because the data sources used by ONS do not differentiate such internal migrants on the basis of their citizenship.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking how many people in West Chelmsford Parliamentary Constituency were paid less than the minimum wage in the latest period for which figures are available. (169769)
Estimates for the number of jobs paid below the national minimum wage by Parliamentary Constituency are not available. However, I attach a table showing the number of jobs earning less than the national minimum wage by Government Office Region.
A guide to measuring low pay and associated articles can be found on the National Statistics website at:

As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning the Office for National Statistics (ONS) policy for market testing data collection activities. (170130)
ONS has a policy of using in house data collection for the majority of its business and household survey data collection activities. We review our overall data collection strategy periodically to identify potential opportunities to outsource or market test activities. There are circumstances where data collection is outsourced where it provides better value for money, subject to the quality of the data being maintained and strict confidentiality requirements being assured.
We tender for Government surveys commissioned by other Government Departments in competition with other survey organisations and have recently been successful in winning contracts.
Examples of data collection activities contracted to private suppliers include retail price levels for the Consumer Prices Index and some aspects of the 2011 Population Census.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Questions on average household income in Herefordshire. (170953, 170955).
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes estimates of regional gross disposable household income (GDHI)(1) using official statistical geographies known as Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS). This is income of the household and non profit institutions serving households (NPISH) sector rather than an average income of households. The County of Herefordshire is in a NUTS3 region and GDHI per head estimates exist up to 2005. A consistent time series exists back to 1995.
These data are at current prices and therefore inflation is not taken into account.
The data table contains estimates of gross disposable household income (GDHI) per head for the NUTS3 region of the County of Herefordshire.
(1) Gross disposable household income (GDHI) is the amount of money that households have available for spending or saving after deductions and expenditure associated with income, e.g. taxes and social contributions and provision for future pension income.
|Gross disposable household income £ per head of population( 1,2) for the county of Herefordshire 1995-2005|
|£ per head|
|(1) Population measure is based upon mid-year estimate for total population.|
(2) Estimates are consistent with the national accounts series for the combined household and non-profit institutions serving households sectors as published in Blue Book 2006.
