The total number of social work bursaries awarded by the General Social Care Council in the 2003–04 academic year was 7,626.

This represents students on the new degree and diploma in social work programmes. It is not possible to separately identify those on the new degree.

Mr. Oaten

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much(a) his Department and (b) agencies of the Department have spent on water and sewerage services in each year since 1997; [182218]

(2) what changes there have been in water consumption by his Department between each year since 1997. [182226]

Fiona Mactaggart

The Prison Service has collected its water consumption and cost figures centrally for the period covered by the question. The non-prison estate has only been collecting water consumption figures for key office buildings since 1999–2000, when these figures were included in the annual "Sustainable Development in Government" annual reports (previously known as the Greening Government annual report). As these reports only required consumption per staff member figures, information on consumption prior to 2001—02 was not retained. The figures are set out in the table.
