Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate she has made of the cost of administration for the charity V to date. (111923)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 18 January 2007, Official Report, column 1312W.

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster pursuant to the answer of 17 January 2007, Official Report, column 1207W, on the V charity, whether the figures for (a) marketing and communications and (b) web portal development are for youth volunteering projects or the administration of the charity V. (111958)

The funds provided to V for (a) marketing and communications and (b) web portal development are restricted grants that have allowed v to provide information to individuals and organisations on how to apply for project grants for youth volunteering opportunities, increase awareness of youth volunteering, and develop a web portal that will allow young people to look for appropriate volunteering opportunities and register their interest or participation in particular opportunities. The web portal will provide specific identifier numbers to allow young people to evaluate the opportunities they have taken part in, provide feedback and log the volunteering opportunities they have attended.
