Kevin Brennan: One civil servant supports the special adviser in the Department, providing administrative support of a non-political nature in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Conduct for Special Advisers.

The position in relation to No. 10 was set out in the reply given by the then Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Edward Miliband) to the right hon. Member for Horsham (Mr. Maude) on 17 December 2007, Official Report, columns 1082-83W.
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his latest estimate is of the number
of (a) UK nationals, (b) non-UK EU nationals and (c) non-EU nationals who were in (i) full-time employment and (ii) part-time employment in the UK in each year since 1995; and what the percentage rate of change was for UK nationals in each type of employment as a proportion of the UK working age population in each of those years. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what the latest estimate is of the number of (a) UK nationals, (b) non-UK EU nationals and (c) non-EU nationals who were in (i) full-time employment and (ii) part-time employment in the UK in each year since 1995; and what the percentage rate of change was for UK nationals in each type of employment as a proportion of the UK working age population in each of those years. (236964)
The attached tables give the number of people of working age in employment for the categories requested, from July-September 1995 to July-September 2008.
The estimates are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
The figures in the table are derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn 2007. They are not entirely consistent with the figures published in the monthly Labour Market Statistics First Release which are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.

|UK||Other EU( 2)||Non-EU||Total( 3)|
|Full-time||Part-time||Full-time||Part time||Full-time||Part-time||Full-time||Part-time||Total( 4)|
|(1 )Men aged 16-64 and women aged 16-59|
(2) Other EU comprises Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden from 1995 to 2003.
(3) Includes those who did not state their nationality.
(4) Includes those who did not state whether they were in full-time or part-time employment.
(5 )Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia joined the EU on 1 May 2004 and are included from 2004 onwards.
(6) Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU on 1 January 2007 and are included from 2007 onwards.
(7) Coefficients of Variation have been calculated for the latest period as an indication of the quality of the estimates, as described as follows:
Guide to Quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of an estimate, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CVfor example, for an estimate of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent. we would expect the population total to be within the range 180-220.
Key Coefficient of Variation (CV) (%) Statistical Robustness
* 0 = CV< 5 Estimates are considered precise
** 5 = CV < 10 Estimates are considered reasonably precise
*** 10 = CV < 20 Estimates are considered acceptable
**** CV 20 Estimates are considered too unreliable for practical purposes
It should be noted that the above estimates exclude people in most types of communal establishment (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites etc.)
