David Lammy: ...its actions, which it will publish shortly. A similar inquiry into the university's actions is necessary. It is therefore right that the new acting vice-chancellor of the university has asked Sir David Melville to conduct such a review, which will investigate all aspects of what happened, including issues of governance.
David Lammy: ...decided that such appointments be made by a new commission. If I remember correctly, that issue was hotly debated about the time I was first elected to Parliament. Several hon. Members rose— Mr. Lammy: We are straying beyond the point, and I still have not reached the detail of the amendments.
David Lammy: .... However, as my hon. Friend knows, at the same time the Clementi review is looking at the entirety of regulation of our legal services. That review is timely and I look forward to hearing what Sir David Clementi has to say.
David Lammy: ...for organising, on behalf of the Government, the annual Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Cenotaph and the Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, the hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr. Lammy) is working closely with the Deputy Prime Minister and Paul Goggins, Minister for Race Equality and external stakeholders to ensure the best support for the forthcoming bicentenary marking...

David Lammy: Clearly, I cannot comment on David Clementi's report, which the Government asked him to produce but which will not be ready until later in the year. Of course I welcome the provision by Tesco, or any supermarket retailer, of information to consumers. That information concerns matters such as tenancy agreements, the writing of wills—something that we all want—and, for people whose family...
David Lammy: ...into the actions of the university itself, and I have made that view clear in discussions with the Funding Council. I am therefore pleased that London Metropolitan has now commissioned Sir David Melville and Deloitte to conduct such a review. I believe that this must look at all aspects of what happened at London Metropolitan, including issues of governance.
David Lammy: I have been asked to reply. Penalties for criminal copyright infringement must be proportionate to the harm caused to UK industries, so that they act as an effective deterrent. We have recently ( 31 October) completed a consultation on introducing exceptional summary maxima (above £5,000) in the magistrates courts for offences of online and physical copyright infringement.
David Lammy: In the 2006/07 academic year, the most recent year for which figures are available, there were 2,400 Swedish domiciled enrolments and 925 Danish domiciled enrolments on full-time courses at English higher education institutions. The figures come from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) student record and cover enrolments to all levels study.
David Lammy: We do not hold enrolment data on publicly recognised vocational qualifications. Data on achievements of vocational qualifications are available at: http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/rsgateway/DB/SFR/s000773/index.shtml
David Lammy: The annual grant letter to the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for 2009-10 was published today 22 January 2009. I have placed a copy in the Library.
David Lammy: The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has published a list of projects funded by the Strategic Development Fund on its website at: http://www.hefce.ac.uk/finance/fundinghe/sdf/
David Lammy: I received no official briefing from the Department prior to my appearance on Celebrity Mastermind. My appearance was in the spirit of charity and raised £2,750 for Action Aid, an international NGO which helps people in the developing world to fight hunger and disease.
David Lammy: The Higher Education Funding Council for England spent £145,000 in 2007-08 on management consultancy activities. This represents 0.002 per cent. of its budget for that year.
David Lammy: The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is being developed by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in consultation with the higher education sector. No decisions have been made on methods of assessing multi- and mono-disciplinary research within the REF. HEFCE will announce any such decisions in due course.
David Lammy: The data are not available in the form requested. On 31 March 2008, the loan accounts of 30,091 borrowers were in credit by over £5.00, at an average of £210 per borrower. These amounts are refunded with interest by the Student Loans Company when borrowers' accounts are reconciled at the end of the financial year.
David Lammy: Figures for England show that about 90,000 student loan borrowers defaulted on student loan repayments for a month or longer in each of the last two years. In 1998, we introduced income-contingent repayment loans. It is generally not possible to default on those loans.
David Lammy: I am happy to look at the hon. Gentleman's constituent's problem, but I would say that such assistance is dependent on Government finance and the proposals to take £610 million out of my Department will not help.
