Students: Forced Marriage

Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will issue guidance to schools and colleges to ensure that advice and support is available for students who might be the subject of (a) forced and (b) arranged marriages. [189115]

Kevin Brennan: A forced marriage is a marriage conducted without the full consent of both parties and where duress is a factor. It is a human rights abuse and is not sanctioned by any culture or religion. In an arranged marriage both parties consent of their own free will, and so arranged marriages are legal. We have encouraged schools through guidance to make available information about helplines and access to support for students who might be the subject of forced marriage. Following recent concerns that information was not being provided to students, my Department is looking into this issue, jointly with the Forced Marriage Unit. We will report back to the House in March.

Youth Services

James Brokenshire: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the targeted youth support pathfinders set out in the Respect Action Plan. [167542]

Beverley Hughes: Evaluation started in October 2006 and will continue until September 2008. Findings from the interim report (due to be published at the end of November) suggest early benefits from the pathfinders: at a strategic level improved multi-agency working and better engagement of practitioners and schools has been perceived.

At an operational level there are reports of raised profile of services, collective ownership and a better understanding of the holistic needs of young people. Practitioners report early gains such as more tailored, coordinated support for those below the statutory thresholds, and therefore earlier intervention.

Evaluation is at too early a stage to provide robust information about the impact on young people. These findings will emerge during the course of next year.

Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what steps his Department and its predecessor has taken to develop youth and community facilities for children over the age of 11 years (a) nationally and (b) in West Lancashire constituency in the last five years.
