Business Secondment (Schools)

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many employees of businesses have been seconded to schools in each year since 1997; and how much tax relief employers claimed in respect of such secondments in each year. (85554)

I have been asked to reply.

No information is available on employees of businesses who have been seconded to schools and on the tax relief claimed by employers in respect of employees seconded to schools.

We welcome links between schools and businesses and the Government make available £25 million a year through the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) to promote closer links between schools and business.
