star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government firmly believes in localism and providing local authorities with powers to introduce measures to deal with local needs and conditions. Local authorities will invariably have a strategy to improve road safety and will prioritise their road network based on the need to reduce casualties. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The provision of the school crossing patrol service is a matter for the local authority. Legislation gives them the power to make arrangements for the patrolling of places where children cross roads on their way to or from school, but does not impose a duty on them to do so. Funding decisions are also a matter for the local authority based on their local needs and priorities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It is for the Council to assess the crossing situation and determine a course of action as it is in this situation. In some cases, if the authority agrees that children from a particular school need help in crossing a busy road but have not recruited anyone, they have to think about finding other ways of making the crossing safer - for example, by putting in a pedestrian crossing.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport provides capital funding to local highway authorities, including Essex County Council, from the local highways maintenance capital block grant. Harlow falls within Essex County Council's area of responsibility and therefore we do not allocate any funds directly to the Borough Council for road maintenance.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2004 the Department has allocated the following amounts to Essex for highway maintenance:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><strong>Year</strong></td><td><p><strong>£m</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td>2004/05</td><td><p>12.626</p></td></tr><tr><td>2005/06</td><td><p>15.782</p></td></tr><tr><td>2006/07</td><td><p>16.682</p></td></tr><tr><td>2007/08</td><td><p>22.428</p></td></tr><tr><td>2008/09</td><td><p>20.706</p></td></tr><tr><td>2009/10</td><td><p>21.361</p></td></tr><tr><td>2010/11</td><td><p>20.959</p></td></tr><tr><td>2011/12</td><td><p>20.728</p></td></tr><tr><td>2012/13</td><td><p>19.838</p></td></tr><tr><td>2013/14</td><td><p>22.482*</p></td></tr><tr><td>2014/15</td><td><p>19.873*</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>* includes the top up announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement.</p><p>The Department also allocated additional funding to authorities to help repair roads damaged by various weather events and this included a further £2.116 million to Essex County Council in 2010/11 and £5.301 million in March 2011. More recently the Department for Transport has agreed to allocate over £2.7 million due to the severe wet weather the country has encountered.</p><p> </p><p>A £200 million Pothole Fund was announced in the Budget on 19 March 2014. From this, £168 million is being made available to councils in England through a bidding exercise. Further details on the fund will be made available in the coming weeks.</p><p><br>Local authorities are also able to use revenue funding allocated by the Department for Communities and Local Government through the Revenue Support Grant for maintaining their local highways. Neither capital nor revenue highways maintenance funding is ring-fenced and it is for local highway authorities to decide upon their spending priorities across the whole range of services they provide.</p><p>The Department for Transport does not centrally hold information on what proportion of this funding is spent by Essex County Council on repairing potholes.</p><p> </p>

The Family and Childcare Trust (formerly the Daycare Trust) has published a Childcare Costs survey annually since 2002. Survey information is available on: <a href="http://www.familyandchildcaretrust.org/childcare-costs-surveys" target="_blank">http://www.familyandchildcaretrust.org/childcare-costs-surveys</a> or by contacting the Family and Childcare Trust. Their findings on the costs of childcare for children aged two and over in England since 2005 are shown in the tables below.</p><p> </p><p>Cost of 50 hours care for nursery, 2005 - 2009</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Family and Childcare Trust Survey</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Weekly Hours of Childcare</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Nursery (2 and over)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p>£132.00</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p>£135.00</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p>£140.00</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p>£149.00</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>50</p></td><td><p>£156.00</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>From the 2010 survey onwards, the hours of weekly childcare used in the cost survey was changed from 50 hours a week to 25 hours a week.

star this property answer text <p>The Care Act will require local authorities to ensure all assessors are appropriately trained to carry out assessments. This builds on the statutory guidance <em>Implementing Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives</em> which followed the 2010 Adult Autism Strategy for England, and which required autism awareness training to be available to all staff working in health and social care and specialist training for those in key roles that have a direct impact on access to services for adults with autism. The Department is currently consulting on the regulations and statutory guidance that will support the implementation of the Care Act, and we will remind local authorities through this of this requirement in <em>Implementing Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives.</em></p><p> </p><p>Due to the complexities of assessing people who are deafblind, regulations under the Care Act will require their assessments to be carried out by a specialist assessor. One of the questions in the consultation document is whether specialist assessors should be required to carry out the assessment of people with other conditions, such as autism, and to explain why this should be the case. Based on the evidence we receive through the consultation we will consider if this requirement should be extended to other conditions.</p><p> </p>

Information from this is provided in the attached table. The next edition of this publication, which will contain 2013 data, is due to be published by the HSCIC on 9 July 2014. The Department has not made an estimate of the savings that have resulted from greater use of generics.</p> more like this
