Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 12 September 2007:

As National Statistician and Registrar General for England and Wales I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many lone parents there were in each local authority in each year for which figures are available, broken down by five year age band. (155349)

Figures are provided for the 1991 and 2001 decennial censuses. As no published tables exist that provide the requested figures, the tables have been specially run and deposited in the House of Commons library.
