Thanks to all who have replied. Previous to this, I've been happily using
the version of ess provided by Michael Rutter on his RuttR repository:
After disabling the RuttR repository - I reinstalled ess (v13.09-1) from
the ubuntu package manager and removed the version installed by the emacs
Now M-x stata works as expected.
Does seem like my issue is related to an as yet unclear issue with ess as
installed by the elpha.
I've emailed Michael Rutter to report the issue pasted below.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ess : Depends: emacsen-common (>= 2.0.8) but 2.0.7 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
