The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Education and Skills (Baroness Ashton of Upholland): The plans will be completed and then published on the Children and Young People's website (www.cypu.gov.uk) and will be in the Library shortly.
The Minister of State, Department for Culture, Media and Sport (Baroness Blackstone): This information is not available. Central government revenue raised from sport includes receipts from VAT, PAYE and other income taxes, corporation tax, capital gains tax and stamp duty and national insurance contributions. Local government receipts are primarily in the form of business rates, reduced where appropriate by discretionary reliefs. Receipts from these sources would need to be reduced for tax and other reliefs accorded to sports organisations by the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise to arrive at meaningful estimates of net receipts. Detailed estimates of the annual totals of these receipts and reliefs in respect of sporting organisations are not maintained.
The Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Lord Macdonald of Tradeston): The Government were elected on their record. The contents of the manifesto were published during the campaign.
Lord Macdonald of Tradeston: At present there is no overall estimate for potential reductions in staff in the Civil Service resulting from e-Government plans. This is a matter for individual departments to consider and include in their business cases when implementing individual projects.
