asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many students aged between 16 and 19 years of age entered full-time courses of non-advanced further education in England and Wales as a proportion of all 16 year-olds in each academic year from 1979–80 to 1986–87.

The figures as a percentage of all 16 to 18-year-olds are as follows. It would not be meaningful to express this as a percentage of 16-year-olds only. Figures for Wales are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
