Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the budgeted net expenditure on youth services was in the south east (a) by each local authority and (b) per young person aged between 13 and 19 years in each of the last eight years. (248839)

Local authorities receive funding from Government through the revenue support grant for youth services, but it is up to them to decide how much funding should be spent based on Government priorities and local needs. Tables set out the net expenditure for each local authority in the South East per year since 2001.
