Survey of English Housing.
Mr. Hoyle: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of the provision of social housing in Chorley; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Ian Austin [holding answer 2 November 2009]: In 2007 the council transferred its stock to Chorley Community Housing. Earlier this year Chorley Community Housing carried out a resident survey which indicated very high levels of satisfaction.
Additional social housing is being provided through the National Affordable Housing Programme (NAHP). So far Chorley has been allocated a provisional £9.58 million under the 2008-11 Programme to deliver an estimated 252 new affordable homes, of which 118 will be for social renting and 134 for low cost home ownership.
Mr. Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the answers of 16 May 2008, Official Report, column 1801W, and to the hon. Member for Hertsmere, column 1800W, on social rented housing: foreigners, how many new (a) local authority social lettings and (b) registered social landlord lettings in England were made to foreign nationals from (i) EU member states and (ii) non-EU member states in (A) 2006-07 and (B) 2007-08. 
Information on the number of foreign national households receiving social housing is collected through the Continuous Recording of Letting form (CORE). Historically CORE has only collected information from registered social landlords. An increasing number of local authorities are now providing information through this process as well, but there are still some gaps in the data. Information on lettings to foreign nationals can
only be supplied in terms of European economic area (EEA) countries and not EU member states. EEA countries also include Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
A question on nationality was first introduced to the form for the 2006-07 data collection period. For 2006-07, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Hertsmere (Mr. Clappison) on 16 May 2008, Official Report, column 1800W. For local authorities, a split between lettings to EEA and non-EEA foreign nationals is not available.
Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if he will provide guidance on the determination of rents to those housing associations whose rent reviews are linked to the retail price index. 
Mr. Ian Austin: In July the Government launched a consultation on draft directions to the Tenant Services Authority (TSA), the new independent social housing regulator. The Government proposed to direct the TSA to set a standard on rent levels for registered social landlords that would apply from 2010-11 onwards.
Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which local authorities apply a flat rate charge to tenants of temporary accommodation; and what the amount of that charge was in each such local authority. 
Dr. Whitehead: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many waste handling facility planning applications have been (a) approved and (b) rejected by local authorities since 2005. 
|Number of waste planning applications that have been decided and granted since 2005|
The applications granted in the year are not necessarily the same facilities for which applications have been made in the period.

Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many live births there were to mothers in each income decile in (a) 2007 and (b) the most recent year for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your request on what information the Office for National Statistics holds on the number of live births there were to mothers in each income decile in (a) 2007 and (b) the most recent year for which figures are available. (298286)
In England and Wales parental income is not collected at birth registration. I am, therefore, unable to provide you with the statistics you have requested.
Mr. Laurence Robertson: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office (1) what discussions she has had with trades unions on proposed changes to the Civil Service Compensation Scheme; and if she will make a statement; 
Paul Holmes: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office (1) what representations her Department has received in response to the proposals for the Civil Service Compensation Scheme contained within Fairness for All; and if she will make a statement; 
Tessa Jowell: The Prime Minister's statement on 31 March 2009, Official Report, column 60WS, announced the Government's intention to reform the Civil Service Compensation Scheme. My officials held discussions with the trade unions and consulted legal advisers before we brought forward proposals on 31 July. In developing these proposals we took account of the range of terms available elsewhere in the public sector. Alongside the Cabinet Secretary and officials I met with the Council of Civil Service Unions on 22 September 2009.
The Cabinet Office has received around 18,000 comments on the Fairness for All proposals, from civil servants, civil service unions, employers and others. We are considering the points made and will publish our response in due course.
Chris Grayling: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight of 2 November 2009, Official Report, columns 687-88W, on drugs: death, what the equivalent figures to those contained in Table 1 were in each year since 1997. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question pursuant to the Answer to the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight of 2 November 2009, Official Report, columns 687-88W, on drugs: death, what the equivalent figures to those contained in Table 1 were in each year since 1997. (298163)
Figures provided in the previous Answer were the number of drug misuse deaths of persons aged (a) below 16, (b) 16 to 18, (c) 19 to 25 and (d) over 25 years of age, in England and Wales, for 2008 (the latest year available).
Drugs classified under the Misuse of Drugs Act (1971) are termed 'controlled substances', and unlawful possession of a controlled substance is illegal, as is possession with intent to supply. Lawful possession of a controlled substance would include when the drug was in the possession of a person it had been prescribed to. It is not possible to ascertain from information collected at death certification whether a drug was obtained lawfully or not.
The table attached provides the number of drug misuse deaths of persons aged (a) below 16, (b) 16 to 18, (c) 19 to 25 and (d) over 25 years of age, in England and Wales, for the years 1997 to 2008.
|Table 1: Numbers of deaths related to drug misuse( 1) , by age group, England and Wales( 2) , 1997-2008( 3)|
|Year||Below 16||16-18||19-25||Over 25|
|(1) Cause of death was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) for the years 1997-2000, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) from 2001 onwards. Deaths were included where the underlying cause was due to drug poisoning (shown in Box 1 below) and where a drug controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 was mentioned on the death certificate.|
(2) Figures for England and Wales includes non-residents.
(3) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
