21 Jun 2002 : Column 608W

finalised at Johannesburg. Progress was made on a Programme of Action, which includes the importance of sanitation in eradicating poverty and meeting the Millennium Development Goal of safe drinking water. Broad agreement was also reached on key issues such as the urgent need to restore fish stocks and address illegal fishing, and on the important role non-governmental actors can play in achieving sustainable development. The meeting also recognised the need for a strong focus on Africa. In addition, preliminary discussions took place on elements for a Political Declaration at Johannesburg. The Programme of Action as it currently stands can be found at www.johannesburgsummit.org

No written submissions were made by either the UK or the EU, as the conference was a negotiating session based on positions outlined in earlier meetings and submissions.

Mr. Laurence Robertson: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is she will make a statement on the cost of disposing of end-of-life vehicles; who has responsibility for dealing with end-of-life vehicles; and if she will make a statement. [62559]

Notes:

1. Funding figures are based on LEAs Section 52 Budget Statements (1999–2000, 2000–01 and 2001–02) as returned to the DfES).

2. The figures cover the special schools element of the Individual Schools Budget (ISB), and Devolved Standards Fund for special schools (these are estimated for 1999–2000 as devolved Standards Funds were not separately identified on the 1999–2000 returns), related central expenditure on educational psychologists, statementing, SEN support services and home to school transport.

3. The figures are gross of income.

4. Pupil numbers are financial year averages, based on Jan Annual School Census data.

5. Real terms figures are quoted in 2000–01 prices, and have been calculated using Budget (April) 2002 GDP deflators.

6. Figures are quoted to the nearest #10.
