To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills when he expects the first children's centres to be established. [108290]

We expect the first children's centres to be announced in June 2003. These early designations will be existing settings that already meet the core offer for children's centres now. Local authorities will submit their strategic plans for rolling out children's centres by 15 October and we expect further announcements to follow throughout the autumn.
