To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills in relation to youth services in each local education authority how many hours of provision are made(a) directly by the LEA (b) on behalf of the LEA and (c) independently of the LEA. 
§ Mr. Ivan Lewis
Under the Learning and Skills Act 2000 the provision of the youth service is the responsibility of local education authorities (LEAs). The Department for Education and Skills does not collect information on youth service hours of provision that are made directly by the LEA, on behalf of the LEA or independently of the LEA.
