Margaret Hodge [holding answer 18 December 2003]: There will be 524 Sure Start local programmes by the beginning of 2004. Children's centres represent the next stage of the Government's plans to expand high quality integrated services in disadvantaged areas. Centres will develop largely from existing provision, including Sure Start local programmes, early excellence centres and neighbourhood nurseries. Children's centres will be initially developed in the 20 per cent. most disadvantaged wards in England. In the long term the Government aim to develop a children's centre in every community.
Mr. Simmonds: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many children have had access to Sure Start local programmes in England and Wales in each year since 1998; and how many are expected to have access to such programmes in 2004.

Alistair Burt: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many assaults have been recorded on (a) teachers and (b) other local authority education staff in Bedfordshire in (i) the last year for which figures are available and (ii) each of the previous five years. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis [holding answer 18 December 2003]: Serious injuries to primary and secondary teachers in Great Britain caused by physical violence reported to the Health and Safety Executive have been as follows:
|Number of serious injuries|
We are investing nearly £470 million over the next three years in measures to improve behaviour and attendance in schools. These will include training for school staff in preventing violence. We have also made it clear that head teachers may permanently exclude pupils responsible for violence. New legislation in the Anti-social Behaviour Act will enable local education authorities to apply for court-imposed Parenting Orders for parents whose children have been excluded from school for serious misbehaviour. And we have issued "A legal toolkit for schools" which identifies legal remedies available when school staff experience problems with violent parents.
