Stephen Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the cost was of learner support funds for 16 to 18-year-olds in (a) 2005-06 and (b) 2006-07; and what the cost is expected to be in 2007-08. 
Jim Knight: This is a matter for the Learning and Skills Council, who operate learner support schemes for 16 to 19-year-olds on behalf of the DfES and hold information on the costs involved in the schemes. Mark Haysom, the Councils chief executive, has written to the hon. Member with the information requested and a copy of his reply has been placed in the House Library.
I am writing in response to your recent Parliamentary Question that asked, What the cost was of Learner Support Funds for 16 to 18 year olds in (a) 2005-06 and (b) 2006-07; and what the cost is expected to be in 2007-08.
The amount of Discretionary Learner Support Fund used to support students aged 16-18 (16-18 Hardship, School Sixth Forms Hardship and 16-18 Residential Bursaries) is as follows:
2005-06 £40.6m (Actual Spend; 2005-06 Annual Accounts)
2006-07 £23.8m (Provisional Outturn)
The over all Discretionary Learner Support Fund budget is available to support learners in both the 16-18 and 19 and over age groups. There is a high degree of flexibility in the budget and we are at an early stage in the year. We would not anticipate establishing the expected spend on discretionary LSF for learners aged 16-18 in 2007-08 until after the start of the academic year 2007/08.
I hope that you find that this information answers your question.
