Children's Centres: Standards

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families in which (a) regions and (b) local authority areas has the target to provide a Sure Start Children’s Centre for every community by 2008 been met to date. (178700)

The target for a Sure Start children’s centre for every community is 2010 not 2008. Local authorities in all regions are making good progress and we are on course to achieve the Government’s interim target of 2,500 Sure Start children’s centres by 2008.
