Volume 489: debated on Friday 20 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the projected expenditure on the integrated children's system is in each of the next five years. (264873)

The planned expenditure on the Integrated Children's System (ICS) for 2009-10 is £8.7 million. This consists of £5 million for capital grants to local authorities and £3.7 million to cover project costs. ICS investment beyond 2009-10 will be subject to the outcomes of the 2009 Spending Review. Our plans will be informed by the conclusions of the feasibility study of ICS recommended by Lord Laming in his report earlier this month on progress on the protection of children in England.
