Mr. Hayes: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much private money was donated to state education institutions in the last year for which figures are available; and how much revenue was generated by managed bequest reserves in that year. 
Jacqui Smith: The Department does not hold details centrally of how much private money was donated to education institutions nor does it hold information on revenue generated by managed bequests. To collect this information would incur disproportionate cost. However, we do know that, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency income to English Higher Education Institutions from endowment and investment funds was £197 million in 200304.
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many people failed to make

repayments to their student loan accounts in each of the last five years; and how many of them the Student Loans Company failed to trace. 
Bill Rammell: There are two student loans schemes. Mortgage-style loans were introduced in 1990. Income-contingent loans were introduced for new students from 1998, while continuing students remained eligible for mortgage-style loans.
The first cohort of students on three year courses with income-contingent loans entered repayment status in April 2002. However, borrowers only make repayments when they are earning over £15,000 and those earning less are not required to make any repayments. Most income-contingent loan repayments are collected by employers through the tax system and current policy ensures that deductions keep pace with earnings so borrowers do not become overdue on their accounts.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) automatically traces most income contingent loan borrowers through the tax system and the Student Loans Company ensures that HMRC has the information needed to match borrower accounts to tax records, actively chasing borrowers as necessary for information.
