To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which local authorities had an increase in the number of schoolchildren in (a) key stage 1 and (b) key stage 2 between 2001 and 2005. (81989)

The available information has been placed in the House Library.

This shows that nine local authorities have reported an increase in the number of pupils in the key stage 1 age group between 2001 and 2005; and over the same period, 13 local authorities have reported an increase in the number of pupils in the key stage 2 age group.
