Social Services: Doncaster

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 22 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what reports have been produced by Paul Gray on the state of children’s services in Doncaster; and if he will make them public. (248698)

[holding answer 19 January 2009]: The Department does not hold this information since Dr. Paul Gray, interim Director of Children’s Services for Doncaster Metropolitan borough council, does not report directly to the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families. Assessment of the performance of children’s services in Doncaster is carried out by means of OfSTED inspections, the most recent of which was the 2008 Annual Performance Assessment (APA). Doncaster’s APA letter was published on 17 December 2008. It can be found at:
