To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will make a statement on the Enterprise Promotion Fund and Enterprise Advisers; and how these initiatives will benefit pupils in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland. [114299]

Enterprise advisers will work with secondary schools in disadvantaged areas, advising and helping on the delivery of enterprise education, improving schools' links with business, and encouraging the use of enterprise techniques in school management. We intend the first advisers to be in place from September 2003, working closely with the enterprise education pilot projects for which we have recently invited applications from schools and others. We hope to announce the locations of the pilot projects and the enterprise advisers later in the summer.The Enterprise Promotion Fund is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry.
