Mr. Randall: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many excess deaths from cold weather there were in (a) the London borough of Hillingdon and (b) Uxbridge constituency in each year since 1996-97. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many excess deaths from cold weather there were in the (a) London Borough of Hillingdon and (b) constituency of Uxbridge in each year since 1996-97. (231806)
Estimates of excess winter deaths are based on the difference between the number of deaths during the four winter months (December to March) and the average number of deaths during the preceding four months (August to November) and the following four months (April to July). It is not possible to say whether these deaths were related to cold weather. The table attached provides the number of excess winter deaths in (a) the London Borough of Hillingdon and (b) Uxbridge parliamentary constituency in 1996/97 to 2005/06 (the latest available).
|Table 1: Excess winter deaths( 1,2) London borough of Hillingdon and Uxbridge parliamentary constituency, 1996-97 to 2005-06|
|(1) The estimated number of excess winter deaths is the difference between the number of deaths during the four winter months (December to March) and the average number of deaths during the preceding four months (August to November) and the following four months (April to July). Figures are rounded to the nearest 10 to reflect the fact that they are estimates. (2) Data are based on deaths occurring in each month.|

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the liability for income tax for households in each income decile group in England and Wales was in (a) 2006/07 and (b) 2007/08; and what it will be for 2008/09. (230825).
The table provided shows estimates of the average income tax. after deduction of tax credits, paid by households in England and Wales by income decile group. Of the years requested, data are only available for the year 2006/07 - figures for 2007/08 will be available in June 2009. Income tax estimates are shown both in the form of annual payments and as percentages of gross household income.
These figures are based on the same dataset which is used to produce the ONSs annual analysis The effects of taxes and benefits on household income which can be found at http://www.statistics.gov.uk/taxesbenefits. This publication presents results for all UK households and therefore the estimates shown here for England and Wales differ slightly to those appearing in the annual analysis.
