Jenny Willott: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) how many and what proportion of new Government IT software procurements have been of (a) open source and (b) proprietary software (i) in total and (ii) in each department in each year since 2004; and if he will make a statement; 
(2) how many and what proportion of Government IT systems used (a) open source and (b) proprietary software (i) in total and (ii) in each department as at the end of each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Watson: Details of individual software procurements across Government and of software used in individual Government IT systems are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Mr. Watson: In respect of information requested concerning the costs associated with the SCOPE programme, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Grieve) on 4 November 2008, Official Report, columns 360-1W.
Mr. Maude: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will place in the Library a copy of the background data for the Delivery Index provided by IPSOS MORI to the Cabinet Office on the public's attitude to and experience of public services relating to the last four quarters. 
Mr. Newmark: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) how many people aged between 16 and 24 years were unemployed in (a) Braintree constituency, (b) Essex and (c) England in each year since 1997; 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Questions asking how many people aged 16-24 were unemployed in (a) Braintree constituency (b) Essex and (c) England in each year since 1997; and what proportion of those
claiming Jobseeker's allowance in (a) Braintree constituency (b) Essex and (c) England were female in each of the last 5 years. (264443, 264445)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles unemployment statistics for local areas from the Annual Population Survey (APS) and its predecessor the annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions.
Table 1 shows the number of people aged 16-24, resident in Braintree constituency, Essex and England who were unemployed in each year since 1997. Estimates for Braintree parliamentary constituency and for Essex, for the majority of the periods requested, can be derived from APS and annual LFS at the level of geography requested. However, due to the small sample sizes at this level of detail, the estimates are considered too unreliable for practical purposes and have not been provided.
Estimates for July 2007 to June 2008 have also been provided as this is the most recent for which figures are available.
Table 2 shows the percentage of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance who were female in January of each of the last five years for the geographies requested.

(1)( )Coefficients of Variation have been calculated for the latest period as an indication of the quality of the estimates. See Guide to Quality below.
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

Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will include information on (a) counselling and (b) possible alternatives to abortion on the National Health Service webpage entitled Abortion: know your options; and if he will make a statement. 
does include information on counselling. It includes links to several sources of further information, including pages from the Family Planning Association's website which cover both counselling and alternatives to abortion at:
Mr. Willetts: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the rate of admissions for alcohol-related incidents per 1,000 admissions for 18 to 21 year-olds was for (a) university hospitals, (b) other hospitals and (c) all hospitals in each of the last 10 years. 
Dawn Primarolo: Data for all hospitals on the rate of alcohol-related finished hospital admissions per 1,000 admissions in England for 18 to 21-year-olds are set out in the following table. The data are only available for the period 2002-03 to 2007-08.
|Finished alcohol-related admissions of patients aged 18 to 21, England 2002-03 to 2007-08|
|Alcohol-related admissions of patients aged 18 to 21||Admissions of patients aged 18 to 21||Rate of alcohol-related admissions of patients aged 18 to 21 per 1 , 000 admissions of patients aged 18 to 21|
The number of alcohol-related admissions is based on the methodology developed by the North West Public Health Observatory (NWPHO). Following international best practice, the NWPHO methodology includes a wide range of diseases and injuries in which alcohol plays a part and estimates the proportion of cases that are attributable to the consumption of alcohol. Details of the conditions and associated proportions can be found in the report Jones et al. (2008) Alcohol-attributable fractions for England: Alcohol-attributable mortality and hospital admissions.
Christopher Fraser: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which NHS trusts performed (a) between one and nine, (b) between 10 and 39 and (c) over 40 cancer-related (i) prostatectomies and (ii) cystectomies in 2007-08. 
Ann Keen: The information is not available in the format requested. A table which shows the count of finished consultant episodes for cancer-related prostatectomy, cystectomy and cystoprostatectomy in 2007-08 by trust has been placed in the Library.
Sir Nicholas Winterton: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will make it his policy to provide timely, high quality and effective care in the home for children with long-term complex health needs; and if he will make a statement; 
(2) what steps his Department is taking to provide packages which co-ordinate health, social care and education to meet the needs of children with long-term complex health needs and their families; and if he will make it his policy to improve co-ordination between hospital and community services; 
(3) if he will increase the funding his Department provides for community children's nurses to work specifically with children with long-term complex health needs; and if he will make a statement. 
Ann Keen: Both the Child Health Strategy, Healthy Lives, Brighter Future, published recently a copy of which has been placed in the Library, and the National Service Framework for Children, Young People and Maternity Services, published in 2004, have reiterated our policy of providing coordinated support, as close to home as possible, for children with complex health needs and their families. A copy of the framework has already been placed in the Library. The Children's Continuing Care Framework, which we hope to launch at the end of May, will provide local partners with the tools to provide tailor made packages of care, involving health, social care and education components. We are taking forward a discrete project looking at the benefits and opportunities arising from investment in community children's nursing services.
