To ask the Secretary of State for Health which boroughs have applied to be Children's Trusts; and how co-terminosity will work between (a) police, (b) Social Services, (c) PCTs and (d) London education authorities. [106215]

[holding answer 1 April 2003]: The closing date for applying to become a children's trust was 31 March. There have been a significant number of bids, of which a proportion is from partnerships led by London boroughs. One of a number of significant issues in the criteria against which the bids are being assessed is the issue of co-terminosity. It is not possible at this stage to analyse in detail the impact of co-terminosity, or lack of it, on the bidding process or the robustness of the plans.
