Mr. Prisk: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he made of the effect of proposed changes to capital gains tax on gross revenue raised by the tax when developing the proposals; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Drew: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how much his Department has spent on the review of approved mileage allowance payments to date; which non-governmental individuals and organisations the review team has met since the 2007 Pre-Budget Report was published; what liaison there has been between the review team and (a) the Department for Transport and (b) the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on this; and what discussions there have been between his Department and trades union representatives on the use of private cars for work purposes by public sector employees as part of the review; 
(8) whether he plans to use the approved mileage allowance payments review to incentivise the purchase of newer vehicles by employers; and what effect the review will have on the access of employees to a provided vehicle, with particular reference to those working in the care sector. 
Angela Eagle: AMAPs cater for a wide range of car drivers and the rates are designed to take into account all relevant factors. They strike a balance between allowing the running costs of all cars, large and small and delivering the Governments environmental policy.
The Government wants to ensure that the tax system properly reflects and supports business activity, in addition to promoting fairness and environmentally friendly business travel. We intend to consider the framework of taxation of cars used for business travel as a whole and confirmed at PBR that we will make announcements on future policy in this area, including AMAPs, in Budget 2008.
As a matter of routine, HM Revenue and Customs has liaised with other relevant Government Departments. A range of stakeholder views has also been canvassedincluding from industry and user group representativesand the Government made it clear at PBR that it will continue to consider further representations in the approach to the Budget.
Jessica Morden: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will ensure that no change is made in information requested about carers in the 2011 census return from that requested in the 2001 census return. 
As National Statistician I am replying to your recent question asking that no change is made in information requested about carers in the 2011 census return from the 2001 census return. (175296)
The value of the information on carers provided by the 2001 Census is well recognised. However, such a question is competing for space on the questionnaire with a number of other questions such as second residence, citizenship, year of entry, qualifications, industry, income and language.
Our current funding for the 2011 Census allows for 3 pages of questions per person. We are at present investigating the potential for obtaining increasing funding for a 4th page which would allow for the inclusion a question on carers.
A White Paper setting out the Government's proposals for the 2011 Census is scheduled to be published in autumn 2008. However, it will not be possible to confirm what questions and response categories are to be included in the 2011 Census until the consultation and question testing programme is complete and formal approval is given by Parliament in 2010.
(4) whether the Office for National Statistics plans to use (a) the Ordnance Survey MasterMap product and (b) the National Land and Property Gazetteer in undertaking the next census as the address source for residential properties. 
As National Statistician and Registrar General for England and Wales I have been asked to reply to your recent questions asking (i) whether the European Commission or Eurostat will have access to the data collected in the 2011 Census; (ii) what the timetable is for the Census test and the publication of the conclusions from it; (iii) whether the Office for National Statistics plans to use (a) the Ordnance Survey MasterMap product and (b) the National Land and Property Gazetteer in undertaking the next Census as the address source for residential properties; and (iv) what research and work is being conducted into measuring multiple occupancy for the forthcoming Census. (176378, 176413, 176419, 176421)
As in previous censuses, statistics from the 2011 round of European censuses, including the UK Census, will be provided to Eurostat as part of a Programme to be agreed by the EU Statistics Programme Committee, on which, as National Statistician, I am represented. The statistics to be provided by each member state will be subject to appropriate National Statistics disclosure control measures that will protect the data from disclosure of any information that would identify an individual person or household.
A full Evaluation of the Census Test, which was carried out in May, will be published in spring 2008. An initial report on the results of an address checking exercise carried out as part of the TestThe Coverage of address Registers for 2007 Census TestPhase 1 is available on the National Statistics website at
ONS is carrying out further research in order to determine the best approach for ensuring that the 2011 Census is supported by the most complete and up-to-date address information. There is currently no single definitive national address register for England and Wales that fulfils Census requirements. For the 2011 Census there is a need to assess the two competing address products, Ordnance Surveys MasterMap Address Layer 2 (AL2) and the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG). A final decision on the 2011 approach to create the initial address list will be made in 2009, on the basis of research of the address products, and ongoing discussions with suppliers about licensing costs.
A number of questions are being developed for the 2011 Census in England and Wales that will seek to collect information on multi-occupancy. These cover the type of accommodation and the extent of self-containment. ONS is developing a household frame for the 2011 Census, and will conduct a pre-Census address check, that will identify such addresses; so that the appropriate number of household forms are delivered to each address. Information from local authorities about areas with high levels of multiple occupancy will also be used to inform the enumeration methodology.
Jane Kennedy: HM Revenue and Customs have sent letters of apology to the vast majority of households where personal data relating to the child benefit recipient, their partner and their children were on the discs.
Mr. Gauke: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many representations he received directly from banks requesting a postponement of the announcement of the loss of computer discs containing the personal data of child benefit claimants. 
Julia Goldsworthy: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many calls have been received by the Child Benefit helpline since the loss of personal records by HM Revenue and Customs; and what the average length was of these calls. 
Over this same period the average call handling time for these calls, taken as the length of the conversation together with the time taken by the adviser to complete any resulting tasks, is around two and a half minutes.
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your request to indicate in which years since 1977 the number of live births in England exceeded the number of births in England in 2006. (176885)
There were 635,748 births in England in 2006. This was exceeded in each of the years from 1987 to 1993.
Mr. Kemp: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of civil service jobs in the north-east were at each grade in the latest period for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning what proportion of Civil Service jobs in the North East are at each grade. (174693)
Statistics on Civil Service employment, including regional statistics, are published in Civil Service Statistics, an on-line article available from the National Statistics website.
The latest period for which the statistics are available is the year to September 2006.
