Andrew Gwynne: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what estimate has been made of the number of people eligible to vote not registered to vote in (a) the County of Greater Manchester, (b) the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport and (c) the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside. 
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your question asking what estimate has been made of the number of people eligible to vote not registered to vote in (a) the County of Greater Manchester, (b) the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport and (c) the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside. (2313)
ONS does not have the data required to answer your question. Data are collected on the number of UK citizens resident in local authorities who are registered to vote, but no data are collected on the number of people who are eligible to vote but who choose not to register.
The ONS population estimates are of the resident population and will include some people who are not eligible to vote.
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning how many EU nationals working in the UK (a) entered and (b) left the country in each month since May 2004. (1888)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes annual estimates of migrants entering and leaving the UK. The attached table provides estimates of migration by KU citizens, where the main reason is for work related reasons, for each year since 2004. These estimates are based on the International Passenger Survey (IPS). The IPS is a sample survey and cannot provide monthly estimates of migration.
Please note that the migration estimates provided only cover those visiting or leaving the UK for periods of twelve months or more. They will therefore exclude those entering or leaving the UK for less than twelve months. Also note that not all those travelling for work related reasons will find work in the UK. Similarly, those who travel for other purposes may subsequently work.
These estimates are of numbers of moves each year rather than numbers of people. For instance, an individual could enter in one year, leave just over a year later and then enter again a year after that. They would appear three times in this table.

1. Migration between the UK and the Republic of Ireland is included in IPS estimates for 2008 but excluded for previous years.
2. Conditional formatting has been applied to the standard error percentages. A migration figure with a standard error of >25% is not considered to be reliable and is in italics.

Mr Watson: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer of 3 June 2010, Official Report, column 51W, on Ministers: codes of practice, how many Ministers have (a) returned and (b) not returned letters to his Department confirming that (i) they have read the code of conduct and (ii) that their personal circumstances are not such that they breach the code. 
Mr Watson: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer of 3 June 2010, Official Report, column 52W, on non-departmental public bodies, if he will publish the names and addresses of all non-departmental public bodies and agencies in a single location. 
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question asking if the Minister for the Cabinet Office will make it his policy to ensure that all National Statistics are published in a machine readable open format.
Current policy on the release of National Statistics, as outlined in the Code of Practice for Official Statistics, states that statistics should be disseminated in a form that enables and encourages analysis and re-use. Also, that datasets and reference databases should be released in formats that are convenient to users.
Recently, the Office for National Statistics opened up access for web developers to over two billion data items right down to local neighbourhood level, incorporating data from across the Government Statistical Service.
The official statistics Publication Hub provides a single point of access to all published National Statistics and, in support of the drive to improve public accessibility to data, we continue to work closely with the Cabinet Office to feed National and Official
Statistics directly to data.gov.uk via the Publication Hub. Indeed, a significant proportion of entries on data.gov.uk are Official Statistics.
We are continuing to invest in improving the accessibility of official statistics and consider this an important part of the official statistics agenda.
