Mr. Burstow: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate the Valuation Office has made of the likely annual receipts from charging care homes NNDR where they provide intermediate care. 
Dawn Primarolo: The Valuation Office Agency has no information regarding the number of intermediate care homes which exist at present, or are likely to be constructed or adapted in the future. It is unable to provide information regarding individual liability since this will depend on the size and location of the property in question. Nor does it have knowledge of the council tax liability which might accrue in such cases if they were not subject to business rates.

Dawn Primarolo: The decision as to whether a property should be entered in the valuation list for council tax, or the rating list for business rates, is based on the definition of domestic property in section 66 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988. In short, if the accommodation is wholly or mainly provided for short periods to individuals whose sole or main residence is elsewhere then it will no longer be domestic and must be treated as non-domestic and, therefore, will be liable to business rates.
Matthew Taylor: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the distribution of benefits for the personal allowance by income deciles in (a) pounds per annum and (b) percentage terms; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Boswell: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much has been raised in each of the last three years by Class 3 contributions sent in from those resident abroad, broken down by country where this amounts to more than 5 per cent. of total numbers, and for the remainder collectively. 
Mr. Willetts: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which of the promotional campaigns for the WFTC have been evaluated by (a) the Government and (b) independent bodies on behalf of the Government; and if he will place copies of the reviews in the Library. 
Dawn Primarolo: All working families tax credit promotional campaigns have been evaluated by independent external agencies managed by COI Communications Research Unit on behalf of Inland Revenue Marketing and Communications.
Qualitative research has been undertaken to develop the creative proposals for the advertising campaigns and measure the effectiveness of the proposals to convey the campaign messages to the target audiences.
Quantitative tracking research has also been organised to evaluate the success of the campaign, by measuring the awareness levels among the target audiences and understanding of the message. The Inland Revenue also monitors the number of calls to helplines, the number of booklets ordered and the take up of WFTC.
The tracking research reports have not been placed in the House of Commons Library, but are held by Inland Revenue Marketing and Communications team and the COI Communications Research Unit. These reports are used to develop all following campaigns.
Quantitative tracking research has been carried out five times since the first WFTC advertising campaign in 1999. Wave 1 was 1999, wave 2 and 3 in 2000, wave 4 in 2001 and wave 5 in 2002 (currently under way).
