We have established a cross-UK Service Children’s Education Forum that brings together the MOD, the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the devolved administration education authorities. The forum first met in April 2007 and meets twice a year to consider key issues facing service children, particularly relating to their movement around the UK and between UK and overseas as part of the service community.
I have written to the hon. Member in response to him raising this matter during the Armed Forces Personnel debate on 10 January 2008, Official Report, column 617. A copy of the letter has been placed in the Library of the House.
