Children's Rights Director of England

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families for what reasons Ofsted does not publish the annual costs of the Office of the Children’s Rights Director; and in respect of how many offices in Ofsted annual costs are not published. (309186)

This is a matter for Ofsted. HM Chief Inspector, Christine Gilbert, has written to the hon. Member and a copy of her reply has been placed in the Libraries of the House.

Letter from Christine Gilbert, dated 21 December 2009:

Your recent parliamentary question has been passed to me, as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, for a response.

Ofsted, as required by the rules governing the disclosure of remuneration for the most senior members of the organisation, discloses in its Resource Accounts the remuneration of the members of the Executive Board. The Children's Rights Director is not a member of the Executive Board and accordingly his remuneration is not disclosed.

A copy of this reply has been sent to Vernon Coaker MP, Minister of State for Schools and Learners, and will be placed in the library of both Houses.
