HC Deb 23 October 2000 vol 355 c2W
Mr. Willis

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what proportion of the Sure Start budget will derive from his Department. [134101]

Yvette Cooper

Sure Start budget is an addition to the Department for Education and Employment's expenditure limit, and the Secretary of State speaks for Sure Start in Cabinet. The money for Sure Start is carried on a separate Vote, and the Head of the Sure Start Unit reports to a cross-departmental steering group in respect of this expenditure. I am chair of this group.
