Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of UK households eligible for but not claiming (a) child tax credits and (b) working tax credits. 
Jane Kennedy: Estimates of the take-up rate for child and working tax credits in 2004-05, for which latest figures are available, are produced in the HMRC publication Child and Working Tax Credit Take-up rates 2004-05. This publication is available on the HMRC website at:
Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of children were living with (a) both birth parents, (b) one birth parent and (c) no birth parents in each year since 1987, broken down by social class. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what proportion of children were living with (a) both birth parents, (b) one birth parent and (c) no birth parents in each year since 1987, broken down by social class. (187143)
This information is only available from the 2001 Census. It is not possible to readily identify whether children are living with their birth parents from other sources.
The question asks for the proportion of children by the number of birth parents in the family. In the 2001 Census the number of children living with both birth parents can be obtained from the number of children living in couple families that are not stepfamilies plus the number of children living in stepfamilies who are children of both parents. The number of children living with one birth parent can be obtained from the number of children living in couple stepfamilies who are the stepchild of one of the partners plus the number of children living in lone parent families. All other children living in
households have been considered to be living with neither birth parent. This group will include children living with a step-parent only and those living with other relatives but not a birth parent.
Table 1, attached, shows the proportion of dependent children in households in England and Wales by number of birth parents and the NS-SEC of the household reference person, according to the 2001 Census. The table refers to children living in households only, because we cannot provide the requested information for children living in communal establishments. According to the 2001 Census, the number of dependent children in communal establishments in England and Wales was 47,643.
From 2001 the National Statistics Socio-economic Classification (NS-SEC) has been used for all official statistics and surveys as a replacement for social class. In some cases, the household reference person may not necessarily be a birth parent of the child.
Comparable data from the 1991 Census are not available because stepfamilies were not separately identified in 1991. Family data are available on an annual basis for recent years from the General Household Survey (GHS) and the Labour Force Survey (LFS). However, these surveys do not readily identify children in families by the number of birth parents.
|Dependent children in households by parent status and NS-SEC of household reference person (HRP)England and Wales|
|NS-SEC||Both birth parents (Percentage)||One birth parent (Percentage)||No birth parents (Percentage)||Base|
| Notes: 1. Cells in this table have been randomly adjusted to avoid the release of confidential data. 2. No birth parents includes children living with grandparents where no parent is present and children living with step-parents only. 3. Children under 16 living with a partner or child are included in the no birth parents category. 4. NS-SEC is calculated according to the household reference person (HRP) and is not necessarily that of either birth parent. 5. An error in processing has resulted in under estimation of the numbers of economically inactive people aged 65-74 who had never worked in tables containing these data throughout England and Wales. Users are advised either to restrict analyses of ever worked and NS-SEC to the economically active population and to economically inactive people aged under 65, or to combine the never worked and not classifiable for other reasons categories when analysing NS-SEC. The latter is the approach adopted by ONS in the production of commissioned tables and has been used in this case. 6. Crown Copyright applies unless otherwise stated, Copyright@ons.gov.uk.

Bob Russell: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer who in HM Revenue and Customs is responsible for ensuring compliance with the national standards for enforcement agents by contracted enforcement companies; what compliance checks were undertaken in 2007; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department and its agencies spent on (a) sponsoring newspaper or publication supplements and (b) funding advertorials in newspapers and other publications in the last year for which figures are available. 
Angela Eagle: In 2006-07 OGCbuying.solutions spent £23,000 on publication supplements. National Savings and Investments could not provide the information within the disproportionate costs threshold. For details of spending by the Treasury and the remaining agencies, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him on 8 October 2007, Official Report, column 219W.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the (a) special advisers and (b) ministerial appointees in possession of a security pass enabling access to his Departments main building in the month prior to the prorogation of Parliament for the 2005 general election. 
Pete Wishart: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what percentage of working days lost by his Department's staff was attributed to stress-related conditions in the most recent year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Jeremy Browne: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how many overseas visits by officials in his Department took place in each of the last 10 years; which countries were visited; and how much was spent on such visits in each such year; 
(2) how much his Department spent on travel (a) within and (b) outside the UK for officials in each of the last 10 years; and what percentage of his Department's overall expenditure was spent on such travel in each such year. 
Angela Eagle: For details of overseas visits I refer to the answer given to the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs. May) on 25 July 2007, Official Report, column 1186W. Spending on UK travel in 2006-07 was £506,000. For details of UK travel in earlier years I refer to the answer given by the then Financial Secretary (Mr. Healey) to the hon. Member for Rayleigh (Mr. Francois) on 29 November 2006, Official Report, column 719W.
Since 1999, the Government have published on an annual basis a list of all overseas visits by Cabinet Ministers costing in excess of £500, as well as the total cost of all ministerial travel overseas. Copies of the lists are available in the Libraries of the House. All travel is undertaken in accordance with the civil service management code and the ministerial code.
