Training: Treasury

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster which training courses her Department or its agencies have offered to Treasury Ministers in the last 12 months; and how many such training courses were attended by Treasury Ministers. (127213)

The Government take the issue of ministerial training very seriously. I and other ministerial colleagues are working closely with the National School of Government (NSG) to further develop ministerial training. The NSG is a non-ministerial department and is the centre of excellence for learning and development in support of the strategic business priorities of government. I have asked the National School’s Principal and Chief Executive to write to the hon. Member giving further details on this issue. A copy of his reply will be placed in the Library for the reference of Members.
