To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) how many outstanding applications there are for vetting teachers; and how many there were six months ago;

(2) what is the total number of teacher vetting requests his Department has received since the inception of the scheme;

(3) what is the longest period a local education authority has waited for the results of a teacher vetting application.

The Department does not handle vetting requests on behalf of local education authorities. The checks are made by local authorities directly with their local police force.
