To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families with reference to his answer of 29 October 2007, Official Report, columns 834-36W, on curriculum, if he will make an estimate of the proportion of children in year 11 in English schools taught each GCSE subject not listed in the table in the answer for each year between 1997 and 2007; and if he will make a statement. (163101)

A table containing the number of 15-year-olds entered for each of the most popular subjects at GCSE for each year between 1997 and 2006 has been placed in the House of Commons Library. This information for 2007 will be available at a later date. The information for every subject at GCSE can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
