To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Taylor of Holbeach on 30 October (WA 130-2), why the information on the number of student migrants with visas at each A- and B-rated and legacy tier 4 sponsoring institution is not centrally recorded; whether the information is held electronically; and, if so, what is the estimated cost of extrapolation.

The number of students currently at A rated, B rated and legacy institutions is not centrally recorded on the sponsorship IT system linking it to a tier 4 sponsor.

Information relating to migrants is electronically recorded on a separate system and the two cannot be reconciled without incurring disproportionate cost.
