Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what estimate he has made of the proportion of students in year nine who were not taught history in that year in (a) 2005, (b) 2008 and (c) the latest period for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. (300696)

History is a statutory subject for all pupils to the end of key stage 3, normally school year nine. We do not have an estimate of the proportion of students in year nine not taught history.
