To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what per pupil funding was awarded for three to five year-olds taking up the 12.5 hours a week early years entitlement in each year since 2001; and if he will make a statement.

Since 2006, funding for the free early education entitlement has been part of thededicated schools grant which funds schools and early years providers for all three to 15 year-olds. Funding for three to five year-olds is not separately identified and each local authority determines distribution to providers, including per pupil amounts.

The underlying changes to the funding of children under five since 2001 make any figures on per pupil funding since that date incomparable.
