Margaret Hodge [holding answer 9 July 2002]: The material produced in the Socrates programme is a matter for the participants, working within the parameters of the programme, and the Department is not involved in its development, or in consultation on its use.
Schools are free to use any material in their teaching, subject to Section 407 of the Education Act 1996. This article requires school governing bodies, head teachers and local education authorities to take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that where political or controversial issues are brought to pupils' attention, they are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views.
Mr. Simmonds: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many first preferences for (a) primary schools and (b) secondary schools were not met in the last five years in (i) Boston and Skegness, (ii) Lincolnshire and (iii) England.

Mr. Challen: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many students from Morley and Rothwell have their tuition fees paid for them (a) in full, (b) in part and (c) not at all since 1997. 
Mr. Challen: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many students in Morley and Rothwell (a) receive full or part entitlement to Education Maintenance Allowance and (b) how that compares to other pilot areas. 
Margaret Hodge: We do not ask the local education authorities who administer the EMA scheme to classify recipients by constituency. However, 4,624 young people in Leeds have received an allowance in this academic year. Of these, 2,579 (56 per cent.) received the full allowance and 2,045 (44 per cent.) received a part allowance. Recently published evaluation reports show that the average proportion of EMA recipients across the 56 pilot areas receiving the full allowance is 63 per cent.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what discussions she has had with the TTA on the reduction in the number of designated recommending bodies for the graduate teacher programme; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Miliband: My right hon. Friend has held no such discussions with the Teacher Training Agency. The agency announced the creation of the first 80 designated recommending bodies on 24 June. There has consequently been no reduction in their number, and at least as many trainees are expected to enter the Graduate Teacher Programme next year as did so in 200102.
Mr. Miliband: The tables show provisional vacancy numbers by region for January 2002 and final vacancy numbers by local education authority for January 2001. Figures are not yet available for 2002 at local education authority level.
