School Access Initiative

Mr. Paul Marsden: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much was spent on the Schools Access Initiative programme in each year since it was introduced; and which schools are not eligible to apply for financial assistance under the programme. [83168]

Mr. Stephen Twigg: The following table gives details of the amount spent on the Schools Access Initiative each year since the scheme was introduced in 1996. A further £100 million per annum will be available in each of the three years 2003–04 to 2005–06.

Special schools are currently ineligible to benefit from the Initiative. However, from 2003–04, the initiative will be delivered through the Single Capital Pot, which will give LEAs greater flexibility in how they spend the funds. Special schools, as well as mainstream schools, will be eligible to apply.

School Admissions

Jeremy Corbyn: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what representations he has received from London boroughs concerning limiting secondary school admission to children resident in their own borough; and if he will make a statement. [84119]

Mr. Miliband: It is unlawful for local education authorities to limit admission to their schools to children living within their own borough, and we are not aware of any that do so. We have, however, received a representation from one London borough about a proposal on which Camden local education authority is consulting schools and parents, to give some priority in its admission arrangements to children who attend Camden primary schools. We do not believe that to be unlawful.

Admission arrangements are determined at the local level and it will be up to Camden LEA, after statutory consultations with other admission authorities in the area and neighbouring LEAs, to decide whether to adopt the proposed change to its admission arrangements.
