Basic Needs Safety Valve Fund

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families when he expects to announce the result of the recent applications for the basic needs safety valve fund for (a) Milton Keynes and (b) other authorities. (197303)

I would hope to announce the result of the recent applications for the basic need safety valve for (a) Milton Keynes and (b) other authorities by close on 4 April 2008. Achievement of this target will depend upon further correspondence with local authorities, and their replies, regarding financial details entered on their application forms. If queries cannot be resolved by close on 4 April 2008, it may be necessary to announce allocations individually.
