§ Mrs. Ann Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what is his estimate of the number of surplus places in each city technology college.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
Some city technology colleges are still building up to full capacity. Total numbers will rise from about 12,000 pupils now to about 15,000 pupils in steady state. Recruitment at age 11, however, is in all cases oversubscribed; there are typically around three applications for every place.
