The costs for Taking Part child data were included in the total costs of the Taking Part survey, provided in my answer to the right hon. Member on 19 November 2012, Official Report, column 322W. For the first three years of the survey (where child data covered 11 to 15-year-olds), the cost for the child element was separate from the main survey and is shown in the following table. From 2008-09 (where the child data covered five to 15-year-olds), the child element was integrated into the overall survey costs and cannot be separately identified.
