Mr. Bob Ainsworth: The hon. Member may find it useful to view the answer given by the then Under-Secretary of State, Defence Procurement to the then hon. Member for Glasgow Govan (Jim Sillars) on 23 October 1989, Official Report, column 358 as it includes information about build costs of various Royal Navy and RFA vessels including the costs for all Type 42 Destroyers and most of the Type 22 Frigates.
Due to the age of the Type 42 Destroyers and the first two batches of Type 22 Frigates, records that would enable a ready estimate today of their cost are no longer held centrally, and to establish those now would incur a disproportionate cost.
The following table shows the original hull costs of the third batch of Type 22 Frigates when they were commissionedthey do not include other costs, such as those for Government Furnished Equipment (GFE)as they are not held centrally for each ship and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
|Ship||Original cost (£ million)|
|Ship||Build cost (£ million)|
Tim Loughton: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of (a) the percentage of children living in one parent families, (b) the number of live births per thousand teenage women and (c) the percentage of children born outside marriage in the last 10 years for which figures are available, broken down by (i) social class, (ii) income, (iii) race and (iv) geographic location. 
As the National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question about what estimates are available for (a) the percentage of children living in one parent families, (b) the number of live births per 1,000 teenage women and (c) the percentage of children born outside marriage in the last 10 years for which figures are available, broken down by (i) social class, (ii) income, (iii) race and (iv) geographic location.

Part (a)One parent families
The percentage of dependent children living in lone parent families in the United Kingdom can be estimated using the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Table 1 (below) shows UK estimates. Estimates broken down by (i) social class, (ii) income, (iii) race and (iv) geographic location are not readily available to answer the question fully for all years and can only be provided at disproportionate cost.
|Table 1: Dependent children in the UK|
|Proportion of dependent children living in lone parent families (percentage)|
LFS quarterly data (average of Spring and Autumn seasonal quarters for all years except for 2006 and 2007 where data are for the calendar quarter April to June only).
There are two existing pieces of information that provide partial answers to part (a). For social class, data are available for 2001 only.
The proportion of dependent children in households in England and Wales by number of birth parents and the NS-SEC (National Statistics Socio-economic Classification) of the household reference person, according to the 2001 Census are available in the response to a recent parliamentary question by David Laws MP (Hansard 187143: 22 Feb 2008 : Column 1107W).

Estimates of the proportion of dependent children living in lone parent families in United Kingdom by ethnicity are available for 2007 using the LFS in the response to a parliamentary question by David Laws MP (Hansard 201194: 24th April 2008: Column 2204W).
