Sir John Bourn said the Plymouth and the Camborne, Pool and Redruth zones had mistakenly concluded, on wrong advice from legal advisers to the Department of Education and Employment, that they could engage on Sure Start, a programme aimed at ensuring individual children are in a position to benefit from education as incidental or conducive to their main objective.
But the legal advisers later altered their view and decided Sure Start was not within their scope.
As a result, Plymouth and Camborne, Poll and Redruth zones each misapplied over £500,000 during 2001 to 2002 and Plymouth. Most other zones’ accounts were passed without comment.
