As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning what estimate has been made of the number of high street shops which have closed in (a) England and (b) North East Cambridgeshire since 1 January 2008 (303715).
ONS does not have statistics on the number of high street shops. Annual statistics on business births, deaths and survival are available from the ONS release on Business Demography at www.statistics.gov.uk. The table below contains the latest statistics available on business deaths of retail businesses for England and the constituency of North East Cambridgeshire. All counts are based on enterprises and not local units (i.e. sites). Where a local unit closes but the enterprise continues to trade at other sites, a death will not be recorded in this data.

Tom Levitt: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how much the Office of the Third Sector originally allocated in its budget to provide grants and funding for the voluntary and community sector for the 2009-10 financial year; how much of this has so far been allocated; and how much remains for the rest of the financial year. 
Angela E. Smith: The Office of the Third Sector (OTS) grant allocations for 2009-10 are set out in the Cabinet Office Main Estimates and updated in the Winter Supplementary and Spring Supplementary Estimates. Expenditure on grants for the third sector will be set out in the Cabinet Office Annual Report and Accounts, expected to be published before the summer recess.
All OTS funds are allocated to programmes set out in 'The future role of the third sector in social and economic regeneration: final report' and for 2009-10 only in, 'Real Help for Communities: Volunteers, Charities and Social Enterprises'.
