A new programme of police authority inspections starting later this year will assess how well authorities are delivering their principal duties, including ensuring value for money and productivity.

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many people who were born in Pakistan were in employment in the UK in each year since 1997. (274430)
The requested information is shown in the attached table.
The estimates are derived from estimates from the Labour Force Survey. As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty. This is assessed in a footnote to the table.
The figures in the table are derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn 2007. Consequently the 2007 and 2008 estimates are not entirely consistent with the figures published in the monthly Labour Market Statistics First Release, or the non-UK born employment figures published every quarter, which are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.

|(1)( )Coefficients of Variation have been calculated as an indication of the quality of the estimates, as described 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 [le] CV<5 Estimates are considered precise
** 5 [le] CV <10 Estimates are considered reasonably precise
*** 10 [le] 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).

As National Statistician, I have been asked to respond to your question concerning the most recent estimate of the number of adult Commonwealth citizens resident in the UK. (274431)
The Office for National Statistics collects data on the Annual Population Survey (APS) which covers residents of the UK. The latest estimates available are for the 12 month period of July 2007 to June 2008. These show that the estimated number of adults resident in the UK who have Commonwealth nationality was 1.15 million. The margin of error around this estimate is +/- 44,000.
Keith Vaz: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his most recent estimate is of the number of third sector organisations; and how much funding from the public purse has been allocated to such organisations in each of the last five years. 
Kevin Brennan: There is no single source for the number of third sector organisations; however latest figures from the NCVOs UK Civil Society Almanac 2009 report that in 2006-07 there were 170,900 general charities and an estimated 600,000 informal community organisations in the UK. Based on figures from the 2005-06 Annual Survey of Small Businesses by the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform we estimate there to be at least 55,000 social enterprises in England.
