Children's Centres

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

15. To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills on what basis funding for children’s centres has been allocated for 2007-08; and if he will make a statement. (127486)

Children’s centres revenue and capital funding for 2006-08 was allocated to 150 local authorities, based on a unit cost per child that took account of the numbers of children under the age of five that must be reached by 2008 and levels of disadvantage. Further amounts were added in recognition of the higher costs of delivering services to children in rural areas and London boroughs.
