To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many UK-domiciled initial participants in higher education have not applied to the Student Loans Company for any financial support in the academic year 2006-07 to date. (113108)

Data are not available on the number of initial participants in higher education in academic year 2006/07 who have not applied to the Student Loans Company for any financial support.

Figures for English domiciled students for 2005/06, which have been derived from the latest available data, show that 898,000 higher education students were eligible for a maintenance loan from the Student Loans Company. 801,000 of these students applied for a maintenance loan. By subtraction, 97,000 students did not apply for a maintenance loan.

Figures for initial participants and those eligible for financial support other than maintenance loans cannot be derived from the available data.
