HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 c1178W
Norman Lamb

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many training places have been allocated in each county in England under the Graduate Teacher Programme in (a) this school year and (b) next school year. [68931]

Mr. Miliband

The information is not available in the form requested. The table shows total numbers of Graduate Teacher Programme places awarded in 2001-02 by Government office region and the numbers of places for 2002-03 that have been awarded to date. Figures for 2002-03 do not therefore include approximately 600 places that have still to be allocated.
