(1) Cause of death was defined using the international Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 260-269 (malnutrition) and E904.1 (effects of hunger) for the years 1997 to 2000, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes E40-E46 (malnutrition) and T73.0 (effects of hunger) for 2001 onwards. Deaths were included where one of these causes was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate. The introduction of ICD-10 in 2001 means mat the numbers of deaths from each cause before 2001 are not completely comparable with later years.
(2) Based on boundaries as of 2009.
(3) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.

Departmental Buildings

Kevin Brennan: The information requested for the Cabinet Office is not readily available and may not be obtained without incurring disproportionate costs.

Non-profit Making Associations: Bexley

Mr. Evennett: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what recent assessment he has made of the effect of the recession on not-for-profit organisations in the London Borough of Bexley. [273206]

Kevin Brennan: The Office of the Third Sector (OTS) is working with key partners to understand the impact of the economic downturn on third sector organisations. At present the available evidence is incomplete and it is too soon to fully evaluate the impact of the downturn on the sector at a constituency level.

The Government continue to take the difficulties many third sector organisations face during this recession very seriously, which is why the £42.5 million package announced in “Real help for Communities: Volunteers, Charities and Social Enterprises” provides targeted help for the sector to face these challenges. This package of support was designed together with third sector leaders and took into account submissions from over 80 charities. This action plan builds on the wide range of measures the Government have put in place to support people through the economic downturn, and on the Government’s long-term commitment to voluntary organisations and social enterprises.

The OTS will continue to monitor this situation closely and work with its partners to share evidence on this issue and will host a sector-wide summit on the economic downturn in June. In addition, the Third Sector Research Centre will also be factoring the impact of the downturn into its analysis of the sector.

Pensioners: Merseyside

Mrs. Curtis-Thomas: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the number of pensioners in households with a net income of less than £130 a week in (a) Crosby constituency and (b) Merseyside in each of the last five years. [273614]

Kevin Brennan: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated May 2009:

Skin Cancer

Sandra Gidley: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many (a) men and (b) women in each age group have been diagnosed with skin cancer in each of the last 10 years. [269789]
