Mr. Lammy: My Department does not collect or hold data on this subject. Part of the work of ConstructionSkills, the Sector Skills Council for the construction industry, is to assess the labour market needs of the construction sector and, through its sector skills agreement, identify ways in which skills needs and shortages can be met. I have therefore asked its chief executive to write directly to the hon. Gentleman about this issue.
Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what courses in which 10 foreign languages were studied by the most students in universities in England in the latest period for which figures are available; and how many studied each. 
In 2006/07 there were 46,100 enrolments on language courses at English HE institutions. The table shows enrolments in the most popular languages
at all levels of HE. However, there are a further 9,150 enrolments classified as other European languages and 1,810 classified under other non-European languages.
