Mr. Oaten: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many helplines her Department operates; and how much her Department has received from the operation of such helplines in each of the last three years. 
Angela E. Smith: The Office of the Third Sector, part of the Cabinet Office, runs an inquiry line. This has been set up to support the variety of other information sources (publications, websites) available outlining Government's support for the Third Sector. This is a '0207' number from which the Government derive no income.
Delivery Partners may run their own inquiry lines in certain cases, for example the Community Development Foundation (CDF) in relation to Grassroots Grants and the Hardship Fund. However, neither the CDF nor my Department receives any income from the operation of these lines.
Tessa Jowell: The Department has paid under £200 for Google online advertising keywords in the last 12 months. This service was used as part of the initial launch of Building Britain's Future website, and the keywords were based on "Building Britain's Future".
Tessa Jowell: There is currently no 'Green Ministers' Cabinet Committee. Issues relating to energy and the environment would generally be dealt with through ED (Environment and Energy) Committee, or its parent Committee, the Economic Development Committee. A full list of Cabinet Committees, their membership and terms of reference can be found in the Libraries of the House
Information relating to the proceedings of Cabinet Committees, including when and how often they meet, is generally not disclosed, as to do so could harm the frankness and candour of internal discussion.
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what (a) the lowest quartile of house prices and (b) average earnings were in (i) England, (ii) each region of England and (iii) each housing authority in Yorkshire and the Humber in each of the last five years. 
A table showing median gross weekly earnings by place of residence for England, for regions in England, and for local and unitary authorities in Yorkshire and the Humber in the last five years has been deposited in the Library of the House. The source for the figures is the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings.
As Chief Executive of the Central Office of Information (COI), I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question on the COI Knowledge Archive database (290043).
The Knowledge Archive is a way of filing and categorising the job files in COI and does not in itself contain any information/knowledge. This system is used to search by a numerical system and does not list the title of each job.
Alistair Burt: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if she will request the Committee on Standards in Public Life to place in the Library a copy of each paper relating to the legal advice (a) sought and (b) received in respect of its inquiry into MPs' expenses and allowances. 
Mr. Hepburn: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many people have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in (a) Jarrow Constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) the UK in each year since 2005. 
The information on the number of people who required treatment for mesothelioma is not held centrally. Requested information on count of finished consultant episodes, where the primary diagnosis was mesothelioma is provided
in the following table for England, South Tyneside Primary Care Trust (PCT) and the relevant strategic health authorities (SHAs). It should be noted that Northumberland, Tyne and Wear SHA and County Durham and Tees Valley SHA combined to form the North East SHA in 2006-07. This information is not centrally held for the United Kingdom.

1. Finished Consultant Episode (FCE)-An FCE is defined as a period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. It should be noted that the figures do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have more than one episode of care within the year.
2. Diagnosis (Primary Diagnosis)-The primary diagnosis is the first of up to 14 (seven prior to 2002-03) diagnosis fields in the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) dataset and provides the main reason why the patient was in hospital. (1)The ICD-10 codes used in this analysis were as follows:
D19 Benign neoplasm of mesothelial tissue
3. Assessing growth through time-HES figures are available from 1989-90 onwards. During the years that these records have been collected the NHS there have been ongoing improvements in quality and coverage. These improvements in information submitted by the NHS have been particularly marked in the earlier years and need to be borne in mind when analysing time series. Changes in NHS practice also need to be borne in mind when analysing time series. For example a number of procedures may now be undertaken in outpatient settings and may no longer be accounted in the HES data. This may account for any reductions in activity over time.
4. PCT and SHA Data Quality-PCT and SHA data were added to historic data-years in the HES database using 2002-03 boundaries, as a one-off exercise in 2004. The quality of the data on PCT of Treatment and SHA of Treatment is poor in 1996-97, 1997-98 and 1998-99, with over a third of all finished episodes having missing values in these years. Data quality of PCT of general practitioner (GP) practice and SHA of GP practice in 1997-98 and 1998-99 is also poor, with a high proportion missing values where practices changed or ceased to exist. There is less change in completeness of the residence-based fields over time, where the majority of unknown values are due to missing postcodes on birth episodes. Users of time series analysis including these years need to be aware of these issues in their interpretation of the data.
5. Northumberland, Tyne and Wear SHA and County Durham and Tees Valley SHA combined to form the North East SHA in 2006-07.
