This is a matter for the Young People's Learning Agency (YPLA) who operate the Education Maintenance Allowance for the Department for Education. Peter Lauener, the YPLA's chief executive, has written to Ms Buck with the information requested and a copy of his reply has been placed in the House Libraries.
Letter from Peter Lauener, dated
I am writing in response to your Parliamentary Questions PQ66836 and PQ66837 that ask:
“How much has been allocated for the education maintenance allowance replacement bursaries in each local authority area for 2011-12.” PQ66836
“How much has been allocated from the education maintenance allowance replacement bursary fund to each school and college in London for 2011-12.” PQ66837
We are still finalising the bursary allocations for the academic year 2011/12 for individual schools, colleges and other education and training providers and we are therefore not yet able to provide the information you have requested. We intend to publish the bursary allocations shortly and I will write to you with the details asked for as soon as possible.
