Mr. Fisher: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if she will make it her policy to continue payment of education maintenance allowance to juveniles in custody aged 16 years and over. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The payment of EMA to young people in detention was trialled in some pilot areas including Stoke-on-Trent. Experience from the pilots was used to inform the design of the national scheme.
Under the national scheme EMA is not available to young people in custody aged 16 years and over. The reason is that EMA is an incentive to support young people with the costs of their learning, and for those in custody these costs are already met. Connexions services and other agencies promote EMA as part of a range of services and support to help young people leaving custody return to learning.
Mr. Fisher: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many students aged between 16 and 18 years resident in Stoke-on-Trent have been in receipt of education maintenance allowances in each of the last three years. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis:
The following list gives the number of students aged 16 to 18 years who were resident in Stoke-on-Trent and received an education maintenance allowance in each of the last three academic years when the pilot operated in this local education authority area.

Mr. Fisher: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many students aged 16 to 18 years in each institution in Stoke-on-Trent were in receipt of education maintenance allowance in each of the past five years. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The Department did not collect data about the number of students aged 16 to 18 in each institution in Stoke-on-Trent who were in receipt of education maintenance allowance during the pilot stage.
We do collect this data for the national scheme whichbegan in September 2004. The list gives those institutions in the Stoke-on-Trent local education authority area, and the number of students in each who have received education maintenance allowance as part of the national scheme, as at 6 January 2005. The total figure excludes students who are resident in the Stoke-on-Trent LEA area but who study in institutions outside this LEA area.

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what groups are being consulted on whether e-learning credits are to be extended beyond 200506; and when a decision will be made. 
Derek Twigg: Electronic learning credits are a valuable resource for schools that improve significantly access to, and stimulate the use of, high quality digital content for learning and teaching. £30 million was made available in 200203 and £100 million in each of 200304, 200405 and 200506. Since no commitment was made to continue funding beyond 200506 (as a specific ring-fenced allocation or otherwise) we are taking account of the views of head teachers, teachers, school governors, the Curriculum Online Content Advisory Board, Becta (the British Educational Technology and Communications Agency), the relevant trade associations as well as direct representations from the content developers and suppliers. Following consideration of these views and representations, a decision will be made as soon as possible as to whether and in what form funding for electronic learning credits might be extended.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what assessment she has made of the need for (a) level 1 and (b) level 2 further education courses in the London borough of Brent. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) was established in 2001 to plan and fund post-16 education and training. This is therefore a matter for the Learning and Skills Council. Mark Haysom, the Council's Chief Executive, will write to the hon. Member with this information and a copy of his reply will be placed in the Library.
Mrs. Fitzsimons: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many independent schools there are in the pre-registration category; how many have had (a) one visit and (b) two allotted visits; and how many are faith schools, broken down by faith. 
There are 148 provisionally registered schools in the transitional phase of registration. 123 have had one visit and 25 have had both of their

allottedvisits. 76 are faith schools, 41 being Muslim, 30Christian Brethren, four Evangelical Christian and one Jewish.
