HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 c1353W
Mr. Goodman

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many civil servants in his Department are assisting with the review of family policy; which(a) advisers from outside the Department and (b) other departments are assisting with the review; what body or committee within the Department is co-ordinating the review; when he expects to publish the review; and if he will make a statement.

Margaret Hodge

The review of family policy formed part of the work of two civil servants and a secondee from the voluntary sector. The views of a number of advisors from outside the Department and of local government have fed in to this work. The review of family policy is an internal DfES review by our Families Division. Its findings will not be published but they are contributing to relevant work in DfES and to the parenting strand of the Child Poverty Review currently being conducted by HM Treasury.
