Mr. Eastham

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is the total cost per year to primary, secondary and further education establishments in fees for the photocopying of copyright educational material. [29447]

Mr. Ian Taylor

[holding answer 19 June 1995]: The Department of Trade and Industry does not have this information. However, I am informed by the Copyright Licensing Agency, the collecting society which administers the photocopying rights of nearly all owners of copyright in books, journals and periodicals, that licence fees received for financial year 1994–95 from local education authority schools was £2.2 million. Licence fees from grant-maintained and independent schools amounted to £934,000, and fees from further education establishments amounted to £2.5 million.
