Will the 2011 England and Wales Census be the last Census for those countries?

Peter Calver, founder of Lost Cousins http://www.lostcousins.com/, a British based family history website whose mission is to match you with cousins researching the same ancestors, writes in the current newsletter that .." there's a good chance that the 2011 England & Wales census will be the last". This statement derives from a comment made to Mr. Calver in a letter from Stephen Penneck, Director General of the Office of National Statistics where he referred to at "Beyond 2011" project which is looking at alternative ways to meet the needs for key population statistics. You can read the newsletter and access the link to the ONS letter at:
