Residential Care Homes

Dr. Cable: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment with what frequency residential care homes are subject to Ofsted inspections; and what the Chief Inspector's assessment is of the educational standards of residential care establishments. [129771]

Ms Estelle Morris: Ofsted inspects and reports upon residential independent schools catering for pupils with special educational needs, which are registered as schools and children's homes, at least once in a six-year period. At the request of the Social Services Inspectorate, Ofsted participates in inspections of Secure Units, which take place at intervals of approximately three years. Ofsted does not inspect the education provided in other types of residential care establishments for young people. HM Chief Inspector's annual report for 1998-99 contains sections about residential special schools (page 59) and the education of young people in secure accommodation (pages 64-65).

Angela Smith: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment (1) what guidance he issues to schools regarding the use of Ritalin; [129957]

Jacqui Smith: My Department and the Department of Health have jointly issued a good practice guide, "Supporting Pupils with Medical Needs", which includes general advice for schools on dealing with medicines safely. It also provides guidance on drawing up individual health care plans for pupils with medical needs, which could include the use of Ritalin if appropriate. My Department has not issued other specific guidance to schools on the use of Ritalin, and we have not received any representations recently on this issue.

Inner-city Schools

Mr. Hesford: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what recent steps he has taken to improve standards in inner-city schools. [129439]

Ms Estelle Morris: I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 3 July 2000, Official Report, columns 75-76W.

Bladder Problems (Women)

Mr. Austin: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans the Women's Unit has to commission research into the effect of bladder problems on the quality of life of women affected by the condition. [129125]

Ms Jowell [holding answer 6 July 2000]: The Women's Unit has no plans to commission research into the effect of bladder problems on the quality of life of women affected by the condition.

Mr. Austin: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what evidence he has received concerning the number of women over the age of 35 who experience bladder problems; and if he will make a statement. [129124]

Ms Jowell [holding answer 6 July 2000]: I have not, in my capacity as Minister responsible for Women, received any evidence concerning the number of women over the age of 35 who experience bladder problems. However, the Department of Health statistics show that 68,410 women aged 35 and over with bladder problems were admitted to NHS hospitals in England during the period 1998-99.
