To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills (1) what arrangements his Department has for the dissemination of educational information regarding environmental matters by way of the network of eco-schools in England; [118690](2) what assessment he has made of the contribution made by the eco-schools programme to the delivery of the citizenship curriculum. [118691]

We have no plans for utilising the network of Eco-Schools (run by EnCams Limited) as a dissemination mechanism for environmental education. The citizenship curriculum is deliberately flexible, allowing teachers to choose the delivery methods best suited to their pupil's needs and interests. The Eco-Schools programme is one of a number of methods schools employ to deliver citizenship.
