Phil Hope: These are matters for the Charity Commission as the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales. The Commission's Chief Executive will write to you and a copy of his response will be placed in the House Library.
Phil Hope: It is not appropriate to disclose values for staff, other than those whose details are reported in Remuneration Reports in the Department's Resource Accounts. A copy of the Charity Commission's Resource Accounts for the year ending 31 March 2007 is available in the Library of the House.
Danny Alexander: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what pension scheme is offered to staff joining the Charity Commission; and if he will place in the Library details of the terms and benefits of the scheme. 
Phil Hope: New entrants to the civil service are covered by the civil service pension arrangements. Staff can choose between nuvos, a defined benefit pension scheme and partnership, a stakeholder pension. If a person is being re-employed, and was previously a member of a civil service pension scheme, they may be able to rejoin their previous scheme, but this will depend on the length of time since they were last employed.
|Band||Full-time annual salary||Rate from 1 April 2008|
For members of partnership, the employer pays a basic contribution of between 3 per cent. and 12.5 per cent. (depending on the age of the member) into a stakeholder pension product and will match the members contribution up to a limit of 3 per cent. Employers also contribute a further 0.8 per cent. of pensionable salary to cover the cost of risk benefit cover (death in service and ill health retirement).
Mr. Laws: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the proportion of children brought up in (a) two parent families and (b) single parent families in each ethnic group 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 question asking what estimate has been made of the proportion of children brought up in (a) two parent families and (b) single parent families in each ethnic group in the latest period for which figures are available. (201194)
The proportion of dependent children in families in the UK can be estimated using the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Table 1 is based on the latest UK family estimates for 2007 and shows the percentage of dependent children in lone parent and couple families according to the ethnicity of the child.
|Table 1: Percentage of dependent children in UK families by ethnicity of child, 2007|
This table excludes children not in a family and children whose ethnicity was not available

As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking how many men were diagnosed with having prostate cancer in each of the last five years.

Chris Grayling: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) how many and what proportion of households included no one in full-time employment in the latest 12-month period for which figures are available; 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your two Parliamentary Questions. The first asks how many and what proportion of households included no-one in full-time employment in the latest 12 month period for which figures are available (198778). The second asks how many and what proportion of people lived in households where no-one was in full time employment in the latest 12 month period for which figures are available (198779).
Estimates are provided from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). There is currently no annual household dataset, so the figures are given for the April-June quarter to be consistent with those published in the 'Work and worklessness among households' First Release (see web link)
For the three month period ending in June 2007, 10.7 million (43 per cent) households include no-one in full-time employment; these households consist of 19.4 million (34 per cent) people.
Published figures for workless households are based on working age households. A working-age household is a household that includes at least one person of working-age, that is a woman aged 16 to 59 or a man aged 16 to 64.
For the three month period ending in June 2007, 4.7 million (25 per cent) working age households include no-one in full-time employment; these households consist of 10.9 million (22 per cent) people.
In calculating the percentages, households with unknown economic status have been excluded.
The LFS is a sample survey covering over 52,000 households in the United Kingdom in each three month period. As with any sample survey, estimates from the Labour Force Survey are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many (a) UK and (b) non-UK born 16 to 24 year olds were unemployed in each quarter since 1997; and what the employment rate in each category was in the same period. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many (a) UK and (b) UK born 16 to 24 year olds were unemployed in each quarter since 1997; and what was the employment rate in each category in the same period. 
The attached table gives estimates of the number of unemployed people and the employment rate for the categories requested for the three month periods ending June and
December each year from 1997 to 2007, derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Comparable estimates for 1998 and 2000 are not available.
It should be noted that the estimate provided is weighted to population estimates consistent with those published in 2003. Reweighted analyses using the latest population estimates, published in summer 2007, will available from 14 May 2008.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
