Letter from Jil Matheson, dated December 2009:
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning what estimate has been made of how many bingo clubs have closed in (a) England and (b) North East Cambridgeshire since 1 January 2008. (303642)
Annual statistics on business births, deaths and survival are available from the ONS release on Business Demography at www.statistics.gov.uk. However, the industrial classification is not detailed enough to separately identify bingo clubs.
