Departmental Telephone Services

Mr. Oaten: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if she will consider the merits of securing accreditation of her Department's helplines to the Helplines Association's quality standard; and if she will make a statement. [295714]

Angela E. Smith: The Office of the Third Sector is responsible for running an inquiry line whose primary purpose is to support the variety of other information sources (publications, website) available to members of the public on Government's support for the Third Sector. Whilst I commend the Helplines Association's Quality Standard, the Office of the Third Sector inquiry line falls outside the criteria for such a standard.

Electronic Warfare

Mark Pritchard: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what steps she has taken to reduce the number of cyber attacks on Government departments in 2009. [295974]

Mr. Hanson [holding answer 28 October 2009]: I have been asked to reply.

The Government are working closely with industry and continue to place a high priority on defending departmental networks from attack.

The Office for Cyber Security was established on 1 September 2009. Its purpose is to provide strategic leadership and coherence across Government on the cyber security strategy.

The Cyber Security Operations Centre was established on 1 September 2009 to monitor the health of cyber space and co-ordinate incident response.

The Police central e-Crime Unit (which was created in September 2008 and is part of the Metropolitan Police Service) deals with criminal cyber attacks and a number of arrests have been made during 2009.

It would not be in the national or public interest to go into more detail regarding particular measures taken.

Olympic Games 2012: Voluntary Work

Mr. Andy Reed: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what progress she has made in promoting volunteering opportunities associated with the London 2012 Olympics in sports clubs; and if she will make a statement. [295376]

Angela E. Smith: The London 2012 Olympic games and Paralympic games present a huge opportunity to boost both volunteering and participation in sport.

The Government have set a target to get 2 million more people more active by 2012-13, 1 million through sport, which will be delivered by Sport England. In addition, Sport England aims to increase volunteering in sport through their strategy for 2008-11 and a new volunteering centre of excellence team. This team is working with national governing bodies to ensure that sports clubs are provided with the skills, capacity and resources to develop their volunteering and to maximise their enthusiasm for London 2012.

Sport England is also working with Volunteering England and Youthnet on the development of the Cabinet Office funded "Inspiration and Legacy from the 2012 Games" project. The project, launched in May 2009,
2 Nov 2009 : Column 717W
aims to encourage volunteering as part of the legacy of the 2012 games. It will direct individuals inspired to volunteer by the 2012 games to volunteering opportunities in sports, including sports clubs, culture and the environment.

Young People

Tim Loughton: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many people under the age of 18 are resident in each local authority area. [295509]

Angela E. Smith: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.
