For earlier years, I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer the former Financial Secretary Mr Stephen Timms (East Ham) gave to the hon. Member for Tatton (Mr. Osborne), 27 January 2005, Official Report, column 443W.
Michael Gove: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received on the involvement of the charity Interpal in the financing of terrorism and related activities; and if he will make a statement. 
Ed Balls: The Chancellor of the Exchequer and I regularly discuss terrorist finance issues with international partners and other relevant parties. However, we do not comment on any particular cases that may be raised in those discussions.
Ed Balls: The al-Qaeda and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 freezes the assets of persons listed by the UN Sanctions Committee under UN Security Council resolution 1390 as members of al-Qaeda and the Taliban, or associated with them, or persons subject to a direction by the Treasury. However, the assets remain the property of those persons and therefore the assets cannot be disposed of.
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what role his Department played in agreeing the financial component of the Olympic bid document; which (a) Ministers and (b) officials were involved in the discussions, and when; and if he will make a statement. 
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the VAT receipts from the delivery of the Olympic games; what plans there are for the use of these receipts; and if he will make a statement. 
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consideration was given to the VAT implications when planning the structure of the Olympic Delivery Authority; and if he will make a statement. 
Dawn Primarolo: The Olympic Delivery Authority was established as a non-departmental public body of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006. The VAT treatment of public bodies is set out in the VAT Act 1994.
Dawn Primarolo: Staff in the Valuation Office Agency are primarily identified by pay band. There is no central record of all job titles used and this information cannot be supplied without disproportionate cost. The titles for all senior management roles are contained ion the Agencys annual report. The primary network role titles are caseworker, referencer and manager.
Dawn Primarolo: The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) does not have a full computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) system, but has developed an automated valuation model (AVM). I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 14 July 2006, Official Report, column 2119W.
Under European VAT agreements a reduced rate of VAT of not less than 5 per cent. is available for the construction, renovation and alteration of housing provided as part of a social policy. However, there is no provision in these agreements that would allow a reduced VAT rate for construction or improvement work to any non-residential building.
To date, where these are available under EU VAT agreements, the Government have been sparing in its use of reduced rates, and only applied them where they offer the best targeted, most efficient support for our social objectives compared with other options. Therefore, we have so far introduced reduced rates for building work in areas that would have the greatest effect on the regeneration and renewal of the UK housing stock, such as certain residential conversions and the renovation of housing that has been empty for more than three years.
The Government keep the impact of VAT on different types of building work under review and any changes are considered by the Chancellor as part of the Budget process. In making these decisions the economic and social impact is taken into account.
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimates his Department has made of the level of missing trader intra-community-MTIC-VAT fraud originating via the Dubai Connection for each year since 1999-2000; and if he will make a statement. 
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what basis the decision was made, upon creation of HM Revenue and Customs, to discontinue the publication of statistics concerning VAT missing trader intra-community fraud, formerly published in HM Customs and Excise Annual Reports; and if he will make a statement. 
Dawn Primarolo: The annual report 2004-05 published on 19 December 2005 was the first for the newly created HM Revenue and Customs and therefore does not seek to replicate the reports of the two former Departments. Instead it brings together in one document information about the new Departments activities. Information about VAT missing trader intra-community fraud is provided on pages 54 and 55 of the published report.
Dawn Primarolo: Reliable estimates of the number of families receiving Child and Working Tax Credits are not available at ward level. However, estimates of the number of recipient in-work families in each constituency and local authority at various dates are published on the HMRC website at:
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many pensioners over the age of (a) 65 years, (b) 70 years and (c) 75 years are in paid employment. (103401)
