As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Questions asking: (i) in which 10 employment sectors there is the highest proportion of migrant workers (300559); and (ii) the number of migrant workers in each employment sector in each year since 2002. (300560)
The available information is shown in the attached tables. Estimates of migrant workers, that is, people in employment in the UK who were born outside the UK, are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Such estimates are only available for eight broad industrial sectors. Therefore, in answer to the first question, Table 1 shows the proportion of the workforce in each sector that comprises migrant workers. Table 2 provides the number of migrant workers in each sector in each year since 2002.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty. This is assessed in a footnote to the tables.
The figures in the table 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.
|Table 1: Proportion( 1) of non UK born workers aged 16 and over by industry( 2) , t hree months ending September 2009 , United Kingdom, not seasonally adjusted|
|(1) The number of non UK born workers as a percentage of all employed in each industry.|
(2) Standard Industrial Classification 92.
(3) Includes those whose industry of employment is unknown.

(2) Includes those whose industry of employment is unknown.
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 CV-for 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 Coef ficient of
* 0 = CV<5
** 5 = CV <10
*** 10 = CV <20
**** CV 20
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).

Mr. Hurd: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office with reference to the answer of 16 September 2009, Official Report, column 2208W, on Ministers: visits abroad, for what reason the requirement for Ministers to inform the Foreign and Commonwealth Office before undertaking visits abroad was removed from the Ministerial Code when it was revised in 2007. 
David Taylor: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office on how many occasions the (a) Civil Service Code and (b) a Civil Service Management Code was found to have been breached following investigations of the activities of a member or members of departmental boards in each of the last five years; and if she will make a statement. 
Tessa Jowell: The Civil Service Commissioners publish information in their annual reports about concerns raised under the Civil Service Code, which is incorporated in the Civil Service Management Code.

Tom Levitt: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office whether her decision to divert funding from the Campaigning Research Programme to the Hardship Fund was made in accordance with Compact principles. 
Angela E. Smith: Although this difficult decision to divert funding away from the Campaigning Research Programme to the Hardship Fund is not in line with Compact principles, the Government remain fully committed to championing the Compact.
Due to the feedback received from the third sector, the additional funding will provide grants to organisations suffering financial hardship as a result of the extraordinary pressures caused by the recession. This will mean that more third sector organisations will be able to deliver vital services to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in society at a time when they need help most.
