To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many officials will work in the new Children's Directorate in his Department. [127895]

The number of officials who will work in the Children and Families Directorate of this Department will be determined by decisions on what functions are required to secure the best possible outcomes for children, young people and families, how those functions can be best organised within this Department and the resources needed for them to be carried out. I will be considering recommendations on those issues soon.
