Steve Webb: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what proportion of those made redundant in each of the last 12 months were women by (a) region and (b) age. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what proportion of those made redundant in each of the last 12 months were women by (a) region and (b) age. (287328)
The attached tables provide estimates for the information requested for the latest four quarters from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Monthly data are not available.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
The figures in the tables are derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn 2007. They are not entirely consistent with the figures published in the monthly Labour Market Statistics Statistical Bulletin which are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.

Mr. Ellwood: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what recent discussions the Secretary of State has had with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on levels of funding allocated by regional development agencies for expenditure on support for the tourism industry. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) contributes towards the regional development agencies' (RDAs) single programme budget. The single programme budget, once allocated, is available to the RDAs to deliver regional priorities identified in their regional economic strategies and the challenging targets set by them in the corporate plans. RDAs are currently revising their corporate plans and DCMS are involved in this process.

Mrs. Spelman: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much was paid in employer pension contributions to (a) the Chief Executive and (b) each board member of each regional development agency in each of the last three years. 
Ms Rosie Winterton [holding answer 4 June 2009]: The financial value of the employer pension contribution made to both RDA chief executives and RDA chairs are detailed in the tables. RDA board members do not receive a pension from the RDA. The data have been rounded up/down, as appropriate and exclude London, which is the responsibility of the Mayor.

Employer contributions of £104,344, based on the civil service pension scheme rates, were paid to the chair's personal pension scheme in December 2008 to cover contributions from December 2002 to December 2008 when he was due to retire.|
