That is a good point and I am glad I took the intervention, to which I hope the Minister will respond. I did not want the debate to turn into one about CAMHS referrals but I am sure all Members have experienced frustration over the referral time lag. I have raised questions in the House and it is immensely frustrating—and part of the reason is that it is a cross-departmental matter, between education and health. However, as my hon. Friend pointed out, a lot of the money comes from the schools budget.
