Local Government: Statistics

Volume 506: debated on Tuesday 2 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what datasets not in the National Indicator dataset are collected from local authorities by his Department's Executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies. (319245)

The Department has three executive agencies; the Planning Inspectorate, Fire Service College, and Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre. None of these agencies collects datasets outside the national indicator dataset.

The Department does not hold information on datasets collected from local authorities by the Department's twenty associated non-departmental public bodies. Given the wide range of responsibilities and interactions those bodies have with local authorities, obtaining this information could only be achieved at disproportionate cost.
