Jon Cruddas : To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills (1) how many children in schools have arrangements for delivering emergency injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) in case of an allergic reaction; [158817]

8 Mar 2004 : Column 1351W

Margaret Hodge: Schools are not required to provide this information to the Department. The arrangements for managing such issues in schools are determined at local level. However, the Department, jointly with the Department of Health, has produced 'Supporting pupils with medical needs—a good practice guide' and Circular 14/96 'Supporting pupils with medical needs in school', in 1996. The guide includes a section on anaphylaxis, with information about emergency adrenaline injection. These documents were written to help schools draw up policies on managing medication in schools and to put in place effective management systems to support individual pupils with medical needs, as well as to set out the legal background.

Faith Schools

Dr. Tonge: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which community schools have closed and re-opened as faith schools in the last 15 years; and which faith was involved in each case. [158948]

Mr. Miliband: The following tables show which community schools have closed to be replaced by schools designated with a religious character ("faith schools") since 1997, listed by LEA area. The first table shows single community schools that have closed and been replaced by single faith schools. The second table shows amalgamations or mergers where community and faith schools have closed, to be replaced by a single faith school. Reliable information is not available in relation to school re-organisations before 1997.

Family Policy

Mr. Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many civil servants in his Department are assisting with the review of family policy; which (a) advisers from outside the Department and (b) other departments are assisting with the review; what body or committee within the Department is co-ordinating the review; when he expects to publish the review; and if he will make a statement. [158076]

Margaret Hodge: The review of family policy formed part of the work of two civil servants and a secondee from the voluntary sector. The views of a number of advisors from outside the Department and of local government have fed in to this work. The review of family policy is an internal DfES review by our Families Division. Its findings will not be published but they are contributing to relevant work in DfES and to the parenting strand of the Child Poverty Review currently being conducted by HM Treasury.
