To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will provide a table showing for Greater London the numbers of young people who left school at each of ages 16, 17, and 18 years in each year since 1988, the numbers expected to leave school in 1992, and the number of people at each of these ages in each of those years.

The following table gives the breakdown of the pupils leaving school in Greater London, analysed by age for the years 1987–88 to 1989–90—the latest year for which information is available. The table also shows the projected population figures for Greater London for the same years.
