Young Offenders: Education

Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 10 June 2009, Official Report, column 894W, on young offenders: education, how much the Youth Justice Board was allocated for expenditure on education in each year since 1999. (280235)

Funding was not allocated in 1999-2000, as 2000-01 was the first year in which the Government provided funding to the Youth Justice Board for expenditure on education.

The following table therefore shows for each year from 2000-01 to 2008-09, (A) the total funding which the YJB has allocated for expenditure on education from its Ministry of Justice (and previously Home Office) grant; and, (B) the amount of DCSF (previously DFES and DFEE) funding allocated to the YJB for education expenditure.
