To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will set out arrangements for safeguarding funding for local and adult community learning. [126802]

My Department and the LSC will agree an overall indicative budget to support non-qualification bearing programmes previously funded under Adult and Community Learning. Nationally this will be based on the broad proportion of LSC funds spent on this type of learning. The LSC will agree with each local LSC a minimum figure for such learning activities in order to maximize the civic, social and cultural gain in every part of England.
