Green Paper

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills when he expects to make available an easy read version of the Green Paper, Care Matters: transforming the lives of children and young people in care; and if he will extend the consultation deadline for those requiring the easy read version of the paper. (99711)

An easy read version of ‘Care Matters: Transforming the lives of children and young people in care’ is being prepared and will be available very shortly. We have no current plans to extend the consultation period, but will wish to continue our dialogue with stakeholders beyond the formal consultation, and will of course be flexible in accepting later responses from those requiring an easy read version.
