§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what progress has been made in encouraging local education associations, other local agencies and business to work together to co-ordinate support for children with special educational needs. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
On 22 October we published a Green Paper, "Excellence for All Children: Meeting Special Educational Needs", which encourages local education authorities, other local agencies and business to work together to support the education of children with special educational needs. We are consulting on how to improve and develop such co-ordination.
