Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many people are employed by the Learning and Skills Council in Lancashire. (117515)

I have been asked to reply.

Thirty-five people are employed at Lancashire Learning and Skills Council. As part of its recent restructuring exercise, the LSC has established four new local partnership teams in Lancashire. These teams will be roughly coterminous with existing local authority boundaries, and will strengthen the LSC’s ability to work in partnership with local authorities and children’s trusts, including on 14-19; and to support wider economic development through stronger links between jobs, training and skills.
