holding answer 5 November 2009

There are more than 900 independent faith schools registered with the Department for Children, Schools and Families. A school can seek faith designation at any time, so an answer to this question could be provided only by examining the date at which individual schools sought designation, and the payments made after that time. Therefore this question could be answered only at disproportionate cost.

Does this answer the above question?
