Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what guidance she has issued to local authorities in 2005 on (a) the issuing of statements of educational need and (b) statemented provision. 
Maria Eagle: The statutory guidance on these matters, to which local authorities and others must have regard, is contained in the special educational needs (SEN) code of practice which was published in 2001. On 15 November 2005 the Department wrote to all chief education officers/directors of children's services in England giving advice on SEN procedures. The letter included advice on the Department's understanding of the law in respect of local authorities adopting blanket policies on carrying out statutory assessments and on specifying and quantifying provision in statements. The full text of the letter is available at www.teachernet.gov.uk/sen

level of spending on adult Level 3 training within the NETP Train to Gain programme in (a) 200506, (b) 200607 and (c) 200708. 
Phil Hope: The National Employer Training Programme is due to be rolled out from April 2006 under the title Train to Gain". Within the programme we shall be trialling, initially in two regions North West and West Midlands, a subsidy to support those undertaking a Level 3 qualification. We have allocated £20 million in each of 200607 and 200708 for the trials.
In addition, employers in all regions will be able to obtain support through Train to Gain for employees without a first Level 2 qualification and who wish to go straight onto a Level 3 qualification. The support provided to these employees will be equivalent to what they would have received, had the learner been undertaking a Level 2 qualification in the same area. The cost of supporting those doing Level 3 rather than Level 2 will come out of the overall Train to Gain budget, rather than from a separate budget.
