Foreign Workers: Bexley

Mr. Evennett: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his most recent estimate is of the number of migrant workers there were in (a) Bexleyheath and Crayford and (b) the London Borough of Bexley in each of the last three years. [191002]

Angela Eagle: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.

(1) Includes males aged 16 to 64 and females aged 16 to 59. Does not include respondents who did not answer the question on country of birth. Estimates are subject to sampling variability.
Note:
It should also be noted that the country of birth question in the APS gives an undercount because:
it excludes certain people who have been resident in the UK for less than six months.
it excludes students in halls who do not have a UK resident parent.
it excludes people in most other types of communal establishments (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites, etc.).
it is grossed to population estimates which exclude migrants staying for less than 12 months.
microdata are grossed to population estimates consistent with those published in spring 2003 which are significantly lower than the latest population estimates.

Households

Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many couple households (a) with and (b) without dependent children there were in each year since 1992; how many and what proportion of these in each category were couples of working age where (i) one and (ii) both were (A) in and (B) out of work.
