|(1) 1999-2000 saw a change in data source when the data collection moved from the RO1 to the Section 52 Outturn collection from the DCSF. 2002-03 saw a further break in the time series following the introduction of Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) and the associated restructuring of the outturn tables.|
1. The information used in the chart has been drawn from CLG's RO1 form (1992-93 to 1999-2000.
2. Pupil figures include all pre-primary pupils, including those under 5s funded by the LA and being educated in private settings, pupils educated in maintained mainstream schools and other LA maintained pupils. The pupil data for pupils attending maintained nursery, primary, secondary and special schools are taken from the DCSF Annual Schools Census. Private voluntary and independent (PVI) under 5 pupil numbers are taken from the Early Years census but are only included for 1999-2000 onwards. For 1995-96 onwards other LA maintained pupils are included in the pupil count. This includes all pupils attending schools not maintained by the authority for whom the authority is paying full tuition fees, or educated otherwise than in schools and pupil referral units under arrangements made by the authority drawn from the Form 8b submitted to the DCSF. Also included as other LA maintained pupils are all pupils attending pupil referral units who are not registered at a maintained mainstream school drawn from the DCSF Annual Schools Census. All pupil numbers are adjusted to be on a financial year basis.
3. Local government reorganisation (LGR) took place during the mid to late 1990's and those LAs that did not exist either pre or post LGR have no expenditure for those years.
4. Figures are rounded to the nearest £10.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much (a) his Department, (b) the Qualifications and Curriculum Agency, (c) the Learning and Skills Council and (d) the Learning and Skills Improvement Service have spent on the Qualifications and Curriculum Framework (QCF) in each of the last three years for which figures are available; and how much each organisation has allocated to QCF for (i) 2010-11 and (ii) 2011-12. 
Kevin Brennan: Figures are given in the following table. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is a new way of recognising achievement through the award of credit for units and qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The QCF was approved by Ministers in November 2008, following two years of test and trial led by the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA). Figures for 2009-10 are based on actual expenditure up to November 2009, the latest date for which figures are available, plus forecast expenditure for the remainder of the financial year. No figures are yet available for 2010-11 or 2011-12 for BIS, the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) or Ofqual. In the case of the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), BIS will be making £46.85 million available in 2010-11 for all of LSIS' needs, and it will be for LSIS itself to determine how much-a very small proportion of that total-it spends on QCF. No figure has yet been determined for LSIS' budget in 2011-12. Expenditure by QCDA on QCF in 2010-11 and 2011-12 will be zero.
