To ask the Secretary of State for Education what plans he has to publish details of the number of pupils excluded from individual grant-maintained schools.

Information on permanent exclusions from maintained schools in England was collected by the Department over a two-year period, starting with summer term 1990, under the national exclusions reporting system. The results of the survey were published on 23 April and showed that a total of 6,743 permanent exlusions had been reported, with 2,910 in year one and 3,833 in year two. This information was collected for purposes of national aggregation and it is not possible to provide a breakdown of the figures by school or by sector because of assurances given as to confidentiality.
