I have been asked to reply.

In the period 1 January 2003 to 31 December 2007 (the last five calendar years) the special educational needs and disability tribunal (SENDIST) has registered 19 appeals against Essex LEA where the type of appeal was "against refusal to make a statement". This was out of a total of 674 appeals that SENDIST registered against Essex LEA.
