star this property answer text <p>The costs differ as, exceptionally, Electoral Reform Services were not involved in the print and distribution of the voting packs for the Liberal Democrat by-election in 2016. On that occasion, these tasks were handled by a member of House staff. The £570 figure quoted is from the successful tender submitted by Electoral Reform Services whom we expect to carry out all functions in future by-elections.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Local authorities have a statutory duty to ensure there is sufficient accommodation for looked-after children in their area. Although there is no requirement for local authorities to provide accommodation in their own area, they may place children in provision offered by the private and voluntary sectors, and placement location is one of the factors that they must take into account when identifying a suitable placement for a child.</p><p>The department is supporting a number of projects to increase capacity locally. Through our £200 million Children’s Social Care Innovation programme, we are funding projects that will increase the number of residential care placements available in London, where demand for placements outstrips supply.</p><p>We are providing seed funding to three local authorities to set up new secure provision, where out of area placements are particularly common. In 2019, we will also be providing seed funding to fostering partnerships to increase their local sufficiency of foster parents.</p>

The responsible local authority must do everything possible to arrange a care placement that allows the child to continue in their existing educational provision, even if they can no longer live in the immediate area.
