Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what the date was of each leak inquiry initiated by the Cabinet Office since 1997; which Department was concerned in each case; and what leak was being investigated in each case. 
Individual Departments are responsible for initiating leak inquiries relating to material from within their own Departments. The Cabinet Office has conducted 15 leak inquiries since May 1997. It has been the practice of successive Governments not to comment on the subject matter of
leak inquiries, which might reveal specific techniques or information that could jeopardise future investigations.

These figures show the numbers by sector subject Area and provided an indication of the numbers on vocational and non-vocational courses.

The Department collects, via School Census, the number of schools which have special units or resourced provision. It does not, however, ask schools to specify what the area of support is. Provisional 2007 data show that there are 1,558 schools in England with a special unit or resourced provision with 21,130 pupils attending such units.
The way in which provision is organised is a matter for individual local authorities and their schools to determine in the light of local needs, priorities and resources. Similarly, decisions on which pupils should attend any such units are for the schools and local authorities to make, in the light of their individual needs and parental wishes and any special educational provision as specified in a statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN).
