Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 12 October 2010, Official Report, columns 170-1W, on young offenders: sentencing, how many (a) 12, (b) 13, (c) 14, (d) 15, (e) 16, (f) 17, (g) 18 and (h) 19-year-olds who had previously been resident in a London borough and who had been convicted for non-violent crimes were given community sentences in (i) 2008 and (ii) 2009. 
Figures for those previously resident in a London borough are not available, as places of residence are not recorded on the court proceedings database. The table shows those sentenced in the London criminal justice areas.
The definition of non-violent offences are all those indictable offences not included in the offence type, 'Violence Against the Person'. Summary offences have not been included as they are not categorised into violent or non-violent offences.
|Number of persons sentenced to community sentences for non-violent indictable offences( 1) by age in London criminal justice area, 2007-08|
|(1) This includes all indictable offences not included in the Violence against the person offence type. Summary offences have not been included as they are not categorised into violent or non-violent offences.|
1. These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
2. These data have been taken from the Ministry of Justice Court Proceedings database. These data are presented on the principal offence basis. Where an offender has been sentenced for more than one offence the principal offence is the one for which the heaviest sentence was imposed. Where the same sentence has been imposed for two or more offences the principal offence is the one for which the statutory maximum is most severe.
3. Sentences at the Crown Court are categorised according to the police force that prosecuted the offence including those sentences that may be given at a court outside the prosecuting police force's area. The statistics are presented by criminal justice area. Police force areas correspond to criminal justice areas except for the Metropolitan and City of London Police, which are combined to form the London criminal justice area. Prosecutions brought by agencies other than the police are categorised according to the criminal justice area of the sentencing court. In the case of sentences at magistrates courts, a change was made to the categorisation by area as part of the rollout of the Libra case management system in magistrates courts during 2008. Sentences given at courts using the Libra system are categorised according to the criminal justice area of the court while sentences given at courts not yet using the Libra system are categorised in the same way as at the Crown Court. By the end of 2006, all magistrates courts were using Libra. This change will have almost no impact on the categorisation by area; only around 0.01 per cent. of sentences at magistrates courts could have been affected in 2007 and 2008. Police forces do not prosecute minor offences (those that are sentenced at magistrates courts) in courts outside their areas.

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 11 March 2010, Official Report, column 454W, on the Building Schools for the Future programme, how much (a) his Department, (b) the local authority and (c) the school contributed to the cost of each project; and what the (i) capital, (ii) administration, (iii) consultancy, (iv) procurement, (v) ICT, (vi) design and (vii) operational cost was of each project. 
Dawn Primarolo: Information on the number of childcare places available in Essex local authority from 1997 to 2009 is shown in the following table. The information requested is not available by parliamentary constituency.
|Table 1: Number( 1) of childcare places( 2 ) for children under eight years of age position at 31 March each year, 1997-2009|
|(1) Figures have been rounded to the nearest 100.|
(2) 1997-2001-Data Source: Children's Daycare Facilities survey-total includes day nurseries, playgroups and pre-schools, childminders, out of school clubs, and holiday schemes. 2003-08-Data Source: Ofsted-total includes full daycare, sessional daycare, childminders, out of school clubs, and creche daycare. 2009-Data Source: Ofsted-total includes childminders, childcare on non-domestic premises, childcare on domestic premises and home child carer.
(3) Data were not collected for 2002 during the transfer of responsibility to Ofsted.
(4) Figures included are revised figures published by Ofsted in September 2009. Data not collected due to transfer of responsibility from LAs to Ofsted. Local authorities were responsible for the registration and inspection of children's day care facilities from 1997 to 2001. Responsibility transferred to Ofsted from 2003 and correspondingly, the categories of childcare changed from day nurseries, playgroups and pre-schools, childminders, out of school clubs and holiday schemes to full and sessional daycare, childminders, out of school clubs, and creche daycare. Therefore, data from 2003 are not directly comparable with data prior to 2002.
Due to changes in legislation, Ofsted have changed the way they publish statistics on registered childcare
providers and places. From 1 September 2008, Ofsted started to record providers in line with new legal requirements using the categories of childminders, childcare on domestic premises, and childcare on non-domestic premises. This change means that the total numbers of providers and places (excluding childminding) shown in its returns up to and including August 2008 and from December 2008 onwards (the last under the old system, and the first under the new system) are not directly comparable.

This Department is committed to revising this guidance as announced in the Child Health Strategy. We are currently updating the guidance so that it reflects the very latest advances in medical support and promotes best practice. Key stakeholders, including Diabetes UK, have provided material for the revised version.
