To ask the Secretary of State for Education what are his current major initiatives involving voluntary youth organisations.

Mr. Boswell

The Department is providing grants of some £8.6 million over the three years to 1995–96 to 60 national voluntary youth organisations. In addition, the Department is providing support to regional and local voluntary youth bodies through the youth work development grants scheme and through a partnership scheme with the London Boroughs Grants Committee.
