§ Mr. Damian Green
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what grants his Department plans to make to NGOs in 2002–03; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
This Department works with over a 1000 voluntary and private organisations to which grants are made directly. Many more organisations receive grants via our NDPBs and other agencies, for which we hold no central records. Therefore this question could only be answered at disproportionate cost.
