As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question asking what contribution net migration made to population change in the UK in each five year period since 1987. (205789)
The table below shows the contribution of net migration and natural change to population change for the UK for each five year period since 1987.
|Contribution of net migration and natural change to population change for the UK for five-year periods from year ending mid-1987 to year ending mid-2006|
|(1) It is not possible to separately identify and split net migration and other changes in the years up to 2001. For 2002-06 net migration and other changes are shown separately. (2) Other changes primarily include changes in the number of armed forces and dependants resident in the area and also (for years up to and including 2001) a factor to ensure that population change over the intercensal period agrees with estimates derived from the Census.

Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what projections of population density for (a) the UK, (b) England, (c) Scotland, (d) Wales and (e) Northern Ireland in 2056 and beyond have been made. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your question asking what projections have been made of population density for (a) the UK, (b) England, (c) Scotland, (d) Wales and (e) Northern Ireland in 2056 and beyond. (205787)
Projected population densities can be calculated for any year from the published projected total population for that year and the area of the country. Projected densities for the year 2056, and country areas, are given in the table below.
National population projections are published for up to 75 years ahead and are available from the National Statistics website at:
However, long-term projections should be treated with great caution. Population projections become increasingly uncertain the further they are carried forward, and particularly so for smaller geographic areas.

Joan Walley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) how many private contractors providing public services have provided a contracted out, final-salary based defined benefit pension scheme or a defined contribution scheme to new starters working on those contracts; 
Phil Hope: The information requested is not held centrally. Where public services contracts involve a transfer of staff from a public sector organisation to a private sector service provider (or a subsequent retender of that contract where TUPE applies), the Code of Practice on Workforce Matters in Public Sector Service Contracts may apply. This code does not apply across the whole of the public sector: local government has a separate code.
Where the Code of Practice on Workforce Matters does apply, it will be for the relevant Government Department to monitor the implementation of the code, including in relation to pensions provision by service providers.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what projections for future years have been made by the Office for National Statistics of (a) the number and (b) the proportion of schoolchildren with (i) one or both parents who were born abroad and (ii) English as a second language. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question regarding what projections for future years have been made of (a) the number and (b) the proportion of schoolchildren with (i) one or both parents who were born abroad and (ii) English as a second language. (206272)
Population projections are not made on the basis of country of birth. Neither have projections been made of those who have English as a second language.
