Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 9 October 2007:

The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning Gross Value Added (GVA) for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly in each year since 2004. I am replying in her absence. (156667)

Regional Gross Value Added (GVA) data are produced using the official statistical geographies known as NUTS (Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics). GVA data exist for the NUTS2 region of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly for the time period 1995-2004. These data were provided in the PQ response Official Report of 16 July 2007, Volume 463, Col 62, which requested Gross Value Added in Cornwall in each year since 1979.

ONS plan to publish regional GVA data up to and including 2006 for NUTS1 regions and 2005 for NUTS2 and NUTS3 regions in December 2007.
