HL Deb 09 May 2002 vol 634 c196WA
Lord Lucas

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What figures they have for the proportion of students admitted to each course at Oxford and Cambridge broken down by (a) social class and (b) state and independent schools. [HL3963]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Education and Skills (Baroness Ashton of Upholland)

The information is not held centrally. I have commissioned this data from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), and I will write to the noble Lord with the requested information in due course and place a copy in the Library.
