To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many students were in receipt of education maintenance grants in each London local authority area in each of the last 10 years.
I have been asked to reply.
This is a matter for the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) who operate the education maintenance allowance (EMA) for the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). Geoffrey Russell, the LSC's acting chief executive, will write to my hon. Friend with the information requested and a copy of his reply will be placed in the House Libraries.
