§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
The information requested falls within the responsibility of the Chief Executive of the Office for National Statistics, who has been asked to reply.
Letter to Lord Robertson of Oakridge from the Director of the Office for National Statistics, Dr. T. Holt, dated 17 July 1998.
As Director of the Office for National Statistics (ONS), I have been asked to reply to your parliamentary question on the life expectancy of a man aged 20 with (a) a heterosexual partner and (b) a homosexual partner.61WA
We do not have any information on the differences in life expectancy between people with heterosexual or homosexual partners. However, the expectation of life in the United Kingdom for all men aged 20 is a further 55.0 years.
