Mark Fisher: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much the Heritage Lottery Fund has spent on (a) works of art and (b) other artefacts in each year since the Fund was established; and what proportion of its expenditure this represented in each case in each year. 
Mr. Lammy: The Heritage Lottery Fund only holds acquisitions data broken down by art and artefacts for those acquisitions made with its funds by museums and galleries. This information is summarised as follows:
|Financial year||HLF total annual spend (£)||HLF spend on acquisition of works of art for museums and galleries (£)||Acquisition of artwork as percentage of total HLF spend||HLF spend on acquisition of artefacts/other objects for museums and galleries (£)||Acquisition of other objects as percentage of total HLF spend|
Mr. Davey: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much is allocated to spending on Adult Apprenticeship pilots at (a) Level 2, (b) Level 3 and (c) graduate apprenticeships funded by the Learning and Skills Council; and whether these funds are included in the (i) work-based learning and (ii) NETP budget allocations. 
Phil Hope: The Learning and Skills Council National Office have allocated £2 million to the Apprenticeships for Adult entry trials, from their Workforce Development budget. This is not part of either the work based learning or NETP funding lines. The trials include programmes at Level 2 and Level 3. It is not possible at this stage to identify the proportion of that funding allocated at each level. Graduate Apprenticeships are not part of this trial.
Mrs. Curtis-Thomas: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many and what percentage of (a) apprenticeships and (b) advanced apprenticeships supported by the Learning and Skills Council which commenced in 2002 have been successfully completed.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what her latest estimate is of the total average

cost to public funds per student of attending higher education in England, including maintenance costs and student tuition; and if she will make a statement. 
Bill Rammell: The planned level of public funding for higher education institutions in the financial year 200506 is £4,630 1 per full-time equivalent fundable student 2 , excluding income from tuition fees. This represents the DfES grant per student for teaching and research.
The provisional average fee expenditure per English domiciled student support scheme student in academic year 2005/06 is £540 1 per student (based on fee support eligible students). The provisional average cost of maintenance expenditure (allowances and grants 3 ) in AY 2005/06 is £280 per student (based on students eligible for support).
The provisional average amount of student loan taken out by English domiciled student support scheme students taking out a loan in AY 2005/06 is estimated to be £3,490. This represents the average cash value of maintenance loans advanced. In resource cost terms this would be around £770 (based on a RAB 4 charge of 22 per cent. under a 2.2 per cent. discount rate).
3 These allowances and HE Grants are available to eligible students for extra help depending on their circumstances, (e.g. students with disabilities, students with dependents, single parent students, those incurring certain travel costs and those who have recently left care).
4 The RAB (Resource Accounting and Budgeting) charge is an estimate of the cost to Government of the percentage of the face value of loans issued in a given year which reflects the resource cost over the expected life of the loan to the Government of making loans.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what proportion of the total costs of higher education were paid by (a) tuition fees and (b) public subsidy in each year from 199293; what the estimate is for each year to 200708; and if she will make a statement. 
Bill Rammell: The following table shows the proportion of total income to English HE institutions from tuition fees and public funding, for years for which data is available. Figures for years beyond 2003/04 are not available because we do not estimate future income to institutions.
|Proportion of income from public funding(22)||71||70||68||67||63|
|Proportion of income from tuition fees(22)||21||21||22||22||23|
|Proportion of income from public funding(22)||61||60||60||60||60|
