To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what his estimate is of the proportion of children living with both parents in each local authority area. (200984)

I have been asked to reply.

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.

Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 9 May 2008:

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the estimate is of the proportion of children living with both parents in each local authority area. (200984)

As no published tables exist that provide the requested figures, Table C0905 has been specially run and is based on 2001 Census Theme Table on all dependent children (T01). The table covers all local authorities in England and Wales and has been deposited in the House of Commons Library.
