To ask the Secretary of State for Education
(1) what the budget is for the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service in each year until 2015;
(2) what plans he has for future staffing numbers within the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service.
CAFCASS budget for 2012-13 was confirmed in the remit letter of March 2012 and is as follows:
|Budget 2012-13 (£ million)|
No decision about future funding has yet been made. However, in light of the current climate, all Government spending is subject to regular review. The future staffing numbers will, to a large extent, depend on the budget for the service.
