As National Statistician, I have been asked to respond to your question concerning how many non-British EU nationals have entered the UK since 2004. (265300)
Official estimates show that there were 640,000 international immigrants of non-British EU citizenship to the UK between 2004 and 2007.
An international migrant is defined as someone who changes their country of usual residence for at least a year so that the country of destination effectively becomes the country of usual residence.
|Migration by EU nationals, 2004 to 2007, United Kingdom|
|European Union( 1)||European Union( 1) 15||European Union( 1) A8|
|(1 )European Union estimates are for the EU25 (EU1S and A8 groupings plus Malta and Cyprus) from 2004 to 2006, and for the EU27 (EU25 plus Bulgaria and Romania) from 2007. Estimates are also shown separately for the EU15 (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, the Irish Republic, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden) and the A8 (the Czech Republic. Estonia. Hungary. Latvia. Lithuania. Poland. Slovakia and Slovenia).|

James Brokenshire: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what recent estimate he has made of the number of external access points that exist between Government departments and agencies and external IT networks. 
Mr. Watson: The Cabinet Office provides access to one external IT network from its internal corporate IT network via the Government Secure Intranet (GSI) service. The GSI is an accredited network that enables over 200 Government Departments and agencies to communicate securely with other connected Government organisations. In order to meet the arrangements for connection to the GSI; Departments and agencies must give assurance that they meet relevant security policies and have external access controls in place.
There can be a number of external access points to internal IT networks dependent on the business need of the particular Government Department or agency. Each Department is responsible for setting, implementing, recording and maintaining its own controls where applicable.
Jenny Willott: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what assessment his Department has made of the lifetime cost-effectiveness of (a) open source and (b) proprietary software for Government IT procurements; and if he will make a statement. 
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing, Acton and Shepherds Bush (Mr. Slaughter) on 24 February 2009, Official Report, columns 592-93W. The Government
seek to actively and fairly consider open source solutions alongside proprietary ones in making procurement decisions. The lifetime cost-effectiveness of open source or proprietary software depends on the individual circumstances of the business requirement. It is evaluated by Departments on a case-by-case basis to ensure overall best value for money for the taxpayer.

Mr. Sanders: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his most recent estimate is of the number of workers receiving below the national minimum wage in each (a) region and (b) local authority area. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question to ask what the most recent estimate is of the number of workers receiving below the national minimum wage in each (a) region and (b) local authority area. (264509)
Estimates for the number of jobs paid below the national minimum wage by Local Authority area are not available. However, I attach a table showing the number of jobs earning less than the national minimum wage by Government Office Region.
A guide to measuring low pay and associated articles can be found on the National Statistics website at:
|Estimates of UK jobs paid below the national minimum wage by Government office region in 2008|
|Government office region||Number (thousand)||Percentage|
| Guide to quality:|
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CVfor example, for an average of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent. we would expect the population average to be within the range 180 to 220.
CV <= 5%
* CV > 5% and <= 10%
** CV > 10% and <= 20%
