§ Mr. Battle
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list the teaching company schemes between academical institutions and industry and numbers participating sponsored by the research councils. 
§ Mr. Ian Taylor
I am replying as my Department has the lead sponsor role for TCS on behalf of all Government Department and research council sponsors.
I have placed in the Library of the House a copy of the latest edition of the "TCS Quarterly Statistical Report", dated 31 March 1995, which includes brief details of all 518 TCS programmes current at that date. Pages 10 to 12 of the report list TCS programmes by academic institution, while pages 3 and 4 list the current TCS programmes by sponsor, including research council sponsors.
