(g) bladder cancer are (i) nationally, (ii) in the Buckinghamshire Health Authority area and (iii) in the South East Regional Office area. I am replying in his absence. (24852) At the national level, figures are routinely presented for men and women separately, while those at regional and local levels are given for persons only.

Ruth Kelly: In April 2000 the Government introduced a number of measures to encourage greater charitable giving. The Getting Britain Giving package of measures included improvements to the gift aid and payroll giving schemes and a new income tax relief for giving shares to charities. The Government are supporting The Giving Campaign, led by the charitable sector, to promote the new reliefs and encourage a culture of giving.
The Chancellor has also asked the Inland Revenue to consult charities on an innovation which would allow gift aid donations to be made, and relief claimed, when people complete their annual tax returns.
Mr. Hancock: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people in the Portsmouth, South constituency (a) received and (b) were entitled to (i) WFTC, (ii) DPTC and (iii) child tax credit in (A) 200001 and (B) 200102.

Mr. Andrew Smith: The numbers in Portsmouth, South receiving the working families tax credit (WFTC) and the disabled person's tax credit (DPTC) at May 2001 and August 2001 are shown in "Working Families and Disabled Person's Tax Credit Statistics. Geographical analyses". The equivalent numbers for April 2000 to April 2001 (DPTC) and for May 2000 to February 2001 (WFTC) are shown in the respective Quarterly Enquiries, although these numbers for WFTC are estimates based on a 5 per cent. sample of awards and are therefore subject to sampling error. Copies of the Geographical analyses and the Quarterly Enquiries are in the Library.
It is estimated that around 5 million families will benefit from the children's tax credit for 200102. It is not known how many of these are in Portsmouth, South, although it is estimated that 675,000 are in the south-east (excluding London).
Dawn Primarolo: In the light of representations received in response to consultation, the Government have decided that the child care element of the working tax credit will be paid direct to the main carer, alongside payments of the child tax credit.
Mr. Willetts: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many WFTC recipients have (a) no income tax liability and (b) an income tax liability that is (i) lower and (ii) higher than the value of their WFTC entitlement. 
Mr. Andrew Smith: A family's income tax liability is defined only for a complete fiscal year, and is based on the incomes and other circumstances of the adult(s) in that year. Working families tax credit (WFTC) awards can start throughout the year, are for 26 weeks, and the value of an award depends on the net weekly income of the family and other circumstances of the family measured at the time of the application. This means that the income tax liability of a WFTC recipient family cannot normally be determined from the data reported on the application form.
Mr. Willetts: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to his answer of 18 October 2001, Official Report, column 1296W, how much each of the campaigns publicising the working families tax credit cost.
