11 Mar 2009 : Column 4MC

Letter of correction from Beverley Hughes:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) on 12 February 2009. Unfortunately the error occurred as a result of duplicate placement index numbers being counted instead of being removed during the analysis. This error has affected all of the figures provided.

The correct answer should have been:

Beverley Hughes: Information on the number of children who left care in 2008 in each local authority who had more than (a) three, (b) five, (c) 10, (d) 20, (e) 30, (f) 40 and (g) 50 foster placements while they were in care in England can be found in the following table.

(1) Source: SSDA903 return on children looked after.
(2) Figures shown are cumulative.
(3) The number of foster placements excludes any episodes of care where children were looked after under an agreed series of short term placements.
(4) Children who, at the time they ceased to be looked after, were not in a foster care placement but who had previously been placed in foster care, have been included.
(5) To ensure that no individual can be identified from statistical tables, we use conventions for the rounding and suppression of very small numbers. National figures have been rounded to the nearest 100 if they exceed 1,000 or to the nearest 10 otherwise. Numbers at local authority level have been rounded to the nearest five and numbers at region level have been rounded to the nearest 10. Numbers of five or less have been suppressed and replaced with a hyphen (—) except where the number is zero.
