I thank my hon. Friend for that question. I know that he is a strong champion of the Sure Start programme in his area. Under phase 2, York is set to receive £1.7 million of revenue and £3.2 million of capital in total to support the development of the seven other centres. The Government's target is for every community to have a Sure Start children's centre by 2010, and as he rightly says, they make an important difference, initially to the most disadvantaged children, and ultimately to all children.
