Children: Day Care

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many mothers receive childcare allowances in (a) Leeds Metropolitan District and (b) Leeds West constituency. (209213)

I have been asked to reply.

The most recent estimates of the average number of families benefiting from the child care element of working tax credit, by local authority and constituency, based on final family circumstances and incomes, are published in the HMRC publication “Child and Working Tax Credit Statistics. Finalised Awards 2006-07. Geographical analyses”. This publication is available on the HMRC website at:

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what estimate he has made of the cost of training the children's workforce in line with the recommendations set out in the Sector Skills agreement issued by the Children's Workforce Development Council in December 2007. (211199)

No estimate has yet been made of the training costs arising from the recommendations in CWDC's Sector Skills Agreement Gap Analysis Report.
