The information on how many procurement contracts were awarded by the Department for Education to small and medium-sized enterprises since May 2010 could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, I can tell my hon. Friend that under the transparency agenda, since January 2011, the Department for Education has reported 43 separate contracts awarded, 27 of which were to small and medium-sized enterprises.
