Mr. Rapson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many retirement pensioners completed a tax return in the most recent year for which figures are available; and what proportion they represent of total retirement pensioners. 
Dawn Primarolo: The Inland Revenue Departmental Expenditure Limit for 2000-01 will be decreased by £411,000 from £2,230,571,000 to £2,230,160,000. The Inland Revenue Running Cost Limit will also be reduced by £2,911,000 from £2,373,579,000 to £2,370,668,000.
The reduction in DEL and running cost limit reflect an inter-departmental transfer of £450,000 running costs provision to Customs and Excise to enable Customs to meet its main commitments from the Grabiner report into the hidden economy. This is partially offset by a £39,000 transfer from the Department of Social Development (Northern Ireland) for a bookkeeping service they provide in respect of the national insurance fund.
In addition, there is a further reduction in Inland Revenue's Running Cost Limit of £2,500,000 in respect of an intra-departmental transfer to the Valuation Office agency, to deal with more appeals than anticipated arising from the 2000 revaluation and increased legal costs.

Dawn Primarolo: Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate for Class XVI Vote 1 (HM Treasury) and class XVI Vote 2 (HM Treasury: UK Coinage), the Departmental Expenditure Limit for 2000-01 will be increased by £12,940,000 from £264,023,000 to £276,963,000.
The increase for Class XVI Vote 1 (HM Treasury) is the net effect of the take up of running costs EYF (£3,400,000) to meet the additional costs of the Treasury's planned programme of work, and to cover the custody charges for holding collateral on debt management office's behalf generated as part of the investment of the Spectrum proceeds; provides for the transfer of provision from other current to running costs for payments under the framework agreement for Partnerships UK (£4,000,000); and an increase in running costs of £540,000 to draw down the moneys allocated from the civil service modernisation fund for the Royal Mint Trading Fund. The running costs limit for HM Treasury will accordingly be increased by £7,940,000 from £64,064,000 to £72,004,000.
Mrs. Lawrence: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if there are any proposals to amend the Office for National Statistics Departmental Expenditure Limit and Running Costs Limit for 2000-01. 
Miss Melanie Johnson: Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate for Class XVI, Vote 12 (Office for National Statistics), the DEL will increase by £5,000,000 from £135,166,000 to £140,166,000 and the Running Costs Limit will increase by £5,000,000 from £132,161,000 to £137,161,000.
The changes in Vote 12 are the result of the take up of £5,000,000 of the end-year flexibility entitlement announced by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury in Table 7 of the 1999-2000 Public Expenditure Outturn White Paper (CM 4812) published on 18 July 2000.
The overall increase is made up of increases in running costs provision in Section A of the Vote of £5,000,000; increases in running costs provision in Section B of £2,500,000 to reflect increased demand for certificate sales and surveys, which will be fully met by additional receipts of £2,500,000; and increases in anticipated EC receipts in Section C of £500,000.
Dawn Primarolo: Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate for Class XVI, Vote 4 (HM Customs and Excise: administration), the Departmental Expenditure Limit (DEL) will be increased by £9,319,000 from £886,858,000 to £896,177,000 and the Running Costs Limit will be decreased by £9,219,000 from £860,957,000 to £851,738,000.
