To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham of 5 February 2010, Official Report, columns 594-96W, on higher education: free school meals, if he will provide the figures by (a) constituency and (b) local authority. [324833]

The edit just sent has not been saved. The following error was returned:

The following figures show pupils who were in English maintained schools and aged 15 at the start of academic years 2001/02 and 2002/03 who progressed to HE by the age of 19 (in 2005/06 and 2006/07 respectively) by local authority. Figures are not available by parliamentary constituency. 2005/06 is the earliest year for which these figures are available.

Care should be exercised when comparing figures across local authorities as the numbers of free school meal children will vary significantly at local authority level. These figures have been estimated using matched data from the National Pupil Database, the Higher Education Statistics Agency Student Record and the Learning and Skills Council Individualised Learner Record. Figures for 2007/08 will be available later this year.

Estimates of the proportion of pupils aged 15 in 2001/02 and 2002/03 academic years, in English maintained schools, who progressed to HE1 by the age of 19 in 2005/06 and 2006/07 respectively, by local authority
