To ask the Secretary of State for Education
(1) how many cases in which the Children and Family Courts Advisory and Support Service has intervened were not resolved after (a) 12 months, (b) 24 months and (c) 36 months on the most recent date for which figures are available;
(2) what the average time taken between the first assessment of a child and the allocation of a case in each Children and Family Courts Advisory and Support Service region was in the most recent date for which figures are available.
The Department for Education does not hold this information. This is an operational matter for which CAFCASS is responsible; I have asked CAFCASS’s chief executive, Anthony Douglas, to write to the hon. Member with this information, and a copy of his reply will be placed in the House Libraries.
