To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills pursuant to his answer of 18 July 2003, Official Report, column 749W, which university medical schools are in receipt of funding from the improving retention pot as a result of admitting full-time students under 21 with an A-level points score of less than 3 C's to study medicine; how many such students each medical school has admitted; and how much such funding each school has attracted.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England, in making funding allocations to institutions to improve retention, does not allocate funds to particular individuals, departments or schools. How they are distributed internally is entirely at the

discretion of institutions. Information on how much funding is passed on to individual medical schools is not available.
