Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the Home Start schemes in South Devon that have received funding; and how much was awarded as earmarked in the 2002 Spending Review. [103473]

Beverley Hughes

[holding answer 18 March 2003]: Central Government does not directly fund any local Home Start in South Devon.

However, three government departments currently provide funding for Home Start UK of £574,000. (Home Office £100,000; Department for Education and Skills £250,000; and Department of Health £224,000).

Home Start UK provides support, advice on development and training for all local Home Starts including South Devon.
