Young People: Refuges

Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what recent representations he has received on the future of the London Refuge; and if he will make a statement. [315802]

Dawn Primarolo [holding answer 5 February 2010]: The Department received a copy of a letter from the chief executive of St. Christopher's Fellowship to directors of Children's Services in London, explaining the financial situation regarding the Refuge, on 19 June. Since then, no direct representations from St. Christopher's have been made. The future of the Refuge was also raised in business questions on 10 December.

Officials are conducting a review of services for runaways in London and the Government have offered financial support if it is needed to help start the process of strengthening these services.
