Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the relative fitness levels of pupils who walk or cycle to school compared to those who are driven. 
Neither is any assessment currently made of children's fitness levels on a national scale. We do, however, measure children's physical activity levels in line with the chief medical officer's (CMO) recommendations that children aged 5 to 16 need at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity every day to be healthy. The
Health Survey for England 2008 showed that 32 per cent. of boys and 24 per cent. of girls aged two to 15 were meeting the CMO recommendation.
Bill Wiggin: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much has been spent on public relations in respect of Sure Start children's centres in each year since 2004; how much is planned to be spent in 2009-10; and if he will make a statement. 
Dawn Primarolo: The amount spent on public relations in respect of Sure Start Children's Centres is set out in the following table. Children's Centres are becoming a universal service for young children and their families-it is important that all families are aware of the services centres offer and are able to access them. So this financial year, a major national communications campaign, including public relations activities, has been funded to raise awareness of children's centres.

Mr. Maude: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department spent on (a) Entry to Employment, (b) community service places, (c) community service local authority pilots, (d) opportunities to participate in community service at school, (e) Youth Taskforce, (f) Youth Opportunity Fund, (g) Youth Capital Fund, (h) Positive Activities for Young People, (i) Empowering Young People pilots, (j) residentials (including Do it 4 Real), (k) Youth Sector Development Fund, (l) Youth Leadership Fund, (m) Youth Workforce Reform, (n) Myplace, (o) Youth Media Fund and (p) other activity programmes for young people in 2008-09; and how much his Department plans to spend on each such programme in (i) 2009-10, (ii) 2010-11 and (iii) 2011-12. 
Dawn Primarolo: Table 1 as follows shows spend on each of the programmes for 2008-09 and allocations for 2009-10 and 2010-11, except for item (h) Positive Activities for Young People (PAYP). Allocations for this are provided in table 2 as funding for PAYP is included in the area based grant so while local authorities receive a nominal allocation, decisions on planned and actual spend are determined locally.

(2) In 2010-11 Entry to Employment (E2E) will become part of provision under the broader Foundation Learning pathway. Funding for Foundation Learning has yet to be determined within the 16-19 further education budget.
(3) Funding of £146 million was made available to deliver Community Service following the announcement in April 2009.
(4) Includes £64 million/year for community action opportunities as part of E2E (2009-10) and Foundation Learning (2010-11). This funding covers both the overall learning provision and the community action element within it: it therefore overlaps with the funding set out in line (a).
(5) The funding for local authority pilots is also included in the figure provided for (b).
(6) The funding provided to support all schools in providing opportunities to engage their pupils in community service is also included in the figure provided for (b).
(7) Youth Capital Fund (YCF) includes YCF+ funding.
