Students: Finance

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the expected cost is of fee (a) loans and (b) grants for full-time students on undergraduate degrees linked to Higher Education Funding Council for England and Training and Development Agency-funded provision for EU students studying in English institutions in 2007-08; what the planned cash cost is of maintenance income contingent loans for full-time higher education students in England in 2007-08 and for EU students studying in English institutions; and what the planned cash cost is of grants for (i) full-time and (ii) part-time undergraduate students from EU member states studying in English institutions in England in 2007-08. [137579]

Bill Rammell: We expect the cost of full-time EU students studying in English HE Institutions in 2007-08 to be as shown in the following table.

(1) Rounded to the nearest £10 million. (2) The resource cost of providing fee loans is based on a RAB charge of 33 per cent. which reflects the true cost of loans to the Government over the lifetime of the loan. (3) The resource cost of providing maintenance loans is based on a RAB charge of 21 per cent. which reflects the true cost of loans to the Government over the lifetime of the loan.

Part-time EU students studying in English HE institutions are expected to cost around £1 million in grants. The estimated cost of loans and grants for EU students represents about 2 per cent. of the total resource cost to the Government of student support provision of approx £1.9 billion. Under the terms of the EC treaty, UK students may attend universities in

other European States and benefit from whatever fee support that country offers.

EU loan repayments will be collected by the Student Loans Company (SLC), which already has experience of recovering loans from UK borrowers who go overseas and from EEA migrant workers who are entitled to loans. All borrowers from September 2006 enter a contract with the SLC enforceable in UK law which, under EC regulation 44/2001, can be enforced by courts in other EU countries.

Supply Teachers

Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much was spent on supply teachers in each of the last five years, broken down by local education authority. [138493]

Jim Knight: The available information relating to supply teaching staff is contained in the following table. The Department is due to collect the section 52 Outturn data relating to the 2006-07 financial year from August 2007.

Notes: 1. Includes only expenditure by maintained nursery, primary, secondary and special schools with delegated budgets. Central local authority expenditure on supply teachers is not recorded separately and is therefore excluded from this table. Expenditure by local authority maintained nursery schools was not recorded in 2002-03 and is therefore also excluded for that year. 2. Includes both the salaries and wages of all supply teaching staff employed directly by the school who are covering curriculum release, long term absence, sickness absence and training absence as well as the cost paid to an agency for supply teaching staff that have been brought in to cover teacher absence. Expenditure on salaries and wages consists of expenditure on gross pay, including bonuses and allowances, maternity pay and the employer's contributions to national insurance and superannuation. 3. Figures do not include any expenditure on supply teacher insurance nor do they net off any receipts from supply teacher insurance claims. 4. Figures are rounded to the nearest 1,000 and may not sum due to rounding. 5. Figures are drawn from local authorities' Section 52 Outturn Statements submitted to the DFES and reported in cash terms as at 17 May 2007.
