Chris Ruane: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the average funding per student was in the further education sector in each of the last 10 years. 
18 Jul 2001 : Column: 239W
John Healey [holding answer 9 July 2001]: The unit of funding for further education students based on total funding for the sector is as follows:
|Year||Unit of funding|
Unit of funding is rounded to nearest £10. Figures include assumed additional employer contributions and exclude FEFC administration and student support
Further Education Funding Council's individualised student record and DfES estimates and projects
There are no comparable figures available prior to 199394.
Mr. Willis: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if she will outline the proposed timetable for the next curriculum and staffing survey. 
Mr. Timms: The possibility of conducting a secondary curriculum and staffing survey in 200102 is being considered at present.
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills when she last travelled on the London Underground in the course of her official duties. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State uses the most efficient and cost effective mode of transport, in accordance with the requirements of the "Ministerial Code" and "Travel by Ministers".
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what financial support is available for UK citizens attending UK universities whose parents are overseas as (a) civilians working in the European Union in the private sector, (b) civilians working in the European Union on behalf of the (i) UK Government, (ii) other UK public body and (iii) the EU, (c) civilians working in the private sector in a non-EU country, (d) civilians working on behalf of the (1) UK Government and (2) other UK public body in a non-EU country, (e) a member of HM armed forces based in a European Union country and (f) a member of HM armed forces based in a non-EU country. 
Margaret Hodge: It has been the policy of successive Governments that eligibility for student support should be based on residence in the UK, or in the case of tuition fee support the EU or European Economic Area (EEA). To receive a student loan, tuition fee support and other supplementary grants, a student (and not their parents)

must normally be able to satisfy three requirements relating to their residence and immigration status on the first day of the first academic year of their course. They must:
A specific exception is made for members of the armed forces serving abroad, and their children and spouses, who are considered to satisfy the temporary employment provision because of the nature of their postings. This exception does not include MOD employees or other staff who are abroad catering for or serving the armed forces (i.e. teachers at forces schools overseas or reservists), nor does it include Government employees working abroad as they are not under the same degree of compulsion to work abroad as a member of the armed forces.
Students who are not eligible for full student support under the normal criteria and whose LEA is satisfied that they do not qualify on the basis of temporary absence provisions may nevertheless qualify for assistance with their tuition fees. All EU nationals, including UK nationals, who have been resident in the European Economic Area (EEA) throughout the last three years are eligible to apply for income-assessed assistance with their tuition fees.
My Department has produced a guide for students and their parents who are or have been temporarily employed overseas which is available from our website at www.dfee.gov.uk/student support.
Mr. Jim Cunningham: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many new day care places in neighbourhood nurseries have been created in Coventry since 1997. 
Mr. Timms [holding answer 17 July 2001]: The Neighbourhood Nurseries Initiative was launched earlier this year. Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership (EYDCP) bids are presently being considered by the DFES and an announcement will be made on funding for each EYDCP shortly.
Mr. Jim Cunningham: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many out of school hours child care places have been created by the three-year
18 Jul 2001 : Column: 241W
start-up fund in Coventry; and how much money from the New Opportunities Fund has gone to Coventry for this purpose. 
Mr. Timms [holding answer 17 July 2001]: The New Opportunities Fund have confirmed an indicative allocation of £1,227,153 for the Out of School Hours programme for the Coventry Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership over the next two years, some of which will be available for three-year start up funds in disadvantaged areas. Assessment by the New Opportunities Fund of the first applications submitted on 1 July for this new funding will take place over the next few months.
Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if she will define the phrase "disadvantaged areas" as used for determining resources via the National Childcare Strategy. 
Mr. Timms: "Disadvantaged Areas" are, for the purposes of the allocation of funding for the National Childcare Strategy, defined as those wards calculated to be the 20 per cent. most disadvantaged nationally against the Department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions (DTLR) index of multiple deprivation. In some cases, grants may also be made for pockets of
18 Jul 2001 : Column: 242W
disadvantage where it is identified that levels of deprivation are at an equivalent level to those wards in the 20 per cent. most disadvantaged banding.
Mr. Jim Cunningham: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many schools in Coventry (a) have received refurbishment and repair in the past four years and (b) will receive improvement projects by the end of this year. 
Mr. Timms: Information showing the schools in Coventry that have benefited from refurbishment and repair investment under the New Deal for Schools programme in the four years from 199798 to 200001 is shown in the table. Over the same period, schools in Coventry have also benefited from other capital refurbishment and repair funding, including formula capital funding devolved to every maintained school from 200001. Coventry local education authority will have details of funding going to individual schools.
Capital investment for schools already allocated to Coventry local education authority from 200102 to 200304 amounts to £20.8 million. It is for the local education authority to decide how and when to invest this money, along with any other funding from its own resources, in line with school building improvement and repair priorities in its local Asset Management Plan.
