Good result Matt
The campaign win on the census has one more hurdle to go! This decision made to fund the extra census questions only applies to England and Wales. It has not yet been confirmed that Scotland and Northern Ireland will follow the same course. Although we expect this will happen, they usually follow the same questions as England and Wales, no announcements have been made about whether this will be the case in 2011.

It is vital that census data about carers comes from the whole of the UK. So just to make sure that the questions on carers are included throughout the UK, Carers UK, Carers Scotland and Carers Northern Ireland are calling on carers in those nations to take the following actions:

If you live in Scotland
Contact your MSP to table a written question about the Census in Scotland and whether it will include a question on carers. (Find your MSP at www.writetothem.com)

You can also write to the General Register Office of Scotland asking if they will follow the decision in England and Wales. Write to]If you live in Northern Ireland [/b]
Contact your MLA to table a written question about the Census in Northern Ireland and whether it will include a question on carers. (Find your MLA at www.writetothem.com)

You can also write to the Census Office for Northern Ireland asking if they will follow the decision in England and Wales. Write to:
