To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills pursuant to the answer of 13 September 2006, Official Report, column 2387W, on schoolchildren (Bristol), what the figures were in 1997. (92342)

We are unable to supply figures relating to 1997. The Department did not collect the individual level information required to produce these figures until 2002. Figures for 2002 have been provided. We are unable to provide residency based figures for children educated in the Independent sector as the Department does not collect individual level information for pupils in the Independent sector.

The information for primary and secondary schools in the maintained sector has been provided in the following table.
