Chris Ruane: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what the average weekly income was in each ward in each principal seaside town in (a) England and (b) Wales in the last month for which figures are available, listed in descending order in each case. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking what the average income was in each ward in each principal seaside town in England and Wales in the last month for which figures are available, listed in descending order with Welsh seaside town clusters disaggregated. (265495)
Estimates of average income are not available at ward level. However, it is possible to provide estimates of gross weekly earnings at Local Authority level. These are estimated from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), and are provided for all full-time employees on adult rates of pay whose pay for the survey period was not affected by absence.
I attach a table showing the median gross weekly earnings for full-time employees for the Local Authority associated with each principal seaside town in England and Wales in 2008.
The ASHE, carried out in April each year, is the most comprehensive source of earnings information in the United Kingdom. It is a sample of employees who are members of pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) schemes.

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 CV - for 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 per cent.
* CV > 5 per cent. and < = 10 per cent.
** CV > 10 per cent. and< = 20 per cent.
x CV > 20 per cent.

Mr. Soames: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what the net international migration was affecting (a) England, (b) Scotland, (c) Wales and (d) Northern Ireland in each year since 1991. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to respond to your question concerning what the net international migration was for (a) England, (b) Scotland, (c) Wales and (d) Northern Ireland in each year since 1991. (265687)
Official estimates of net international migration for the constituent countries of the UK in each year since 1991 are given in Table 1.
|Net migration to the countries of the UK, 1991-92 to 2006-07|
|Mid-year to mid-year||England||Wales||Scotland( 1)||Northern Ireland( 2)|
|(1) The estimates for Scotland have been revised. However, international migration estimates for Scotland for the purposes of estimating population change will not be revised and so there may be some differences. (2) The Northern Ireland figures are based on new registrations with a family doctor from outside the UK.
