adult and family learning. In addition we are making £210 million available in 200607 through the Learning and Skills Council for adults' learning for personal and community development. This includes £37 million specifically for family learning including the family literacy, language and numeracy programme. Many such courses and programmes will take place in schools.
Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the level of funding for adult education in Essex was in each of the last five years; and what it is estimated to be for the current year. 
Phil Hope: The Department allocates funds for education and training in the post-16 learning and skills sector, including adult education, to the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). The LSC was established in 2001 bringing the planning and funding of post-16 education together under one body.
In 200102 the Learning and Skills Council spent £2,236 million on adult programmes including FE, Work Based Learning, Adult and Community Learning and other programmes. This increased to £2,427 million in 200203 and to £2,866 million in 200304. These figures are available in the LSC's published accounts. Figures for adult education for the years prior to 2001 are not comparable as the budget was split between a range of different organisations.
My Department does not hold funding figures for adult education in Essex. As the allocation of funding in local areas relates to the LSC's operational responsibilities, I have asked the LSC's Chief Executive, Mary Haysom, to write to the hon. Member with the information requested. A copy of his reply will be placed in the Library.
The figures are for the Essex County Council administrative area only and are for learning programmes delivered by Essex County Council's Adult Community Learning service (they exclude figures for the unitary authority areas of Southend on Sea and Thurrock, which also fall within the responsibility of LSC Essex). The figures relate to the LSC's funding streams:
Annette Brooke: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what is the allocated training budget per employee of the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service in 200506; and how much was spent on training per employee in each of the two preceding financial years. 
Maria Eagle [holding answer 27 October 2005]: This is a matter for the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS). Anthony Douglas, the CAFCASS chief executive, will write to the hon. Member with this information and a copy of his reply will be placed in the House Library.
