The Department collects information from each local authority on the number of surplus places through an annual survey. The most recent published data relate to the position at January 2009 and show the breakdown of surplus places by local authority in primary and secondary schools. The data are available at:

http://www.teachernet.gov.uk/management/tsp/primarytoolkit/context/data

As requested, a copy of the data has been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

A table showing the number of local authorities with a percentage of surplus places of 10 or above at primary level and those with a percentage of surplus of 10 or above at secondary level has also been placed in the Libraries. There are no local authorities with 25 per cent. or more surplus school places.
