To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what assessment he has made of the pilot of Activity Agreement Allowances. (128268)

The Activity Agreement pilots began in April 2006 in eight areas of England. They were originally planned to run to the end of March 2008. In his Budget Report in March, the Chancellor announced an extension of the pilots into the 2007 CSR period.

A comprehensive evaluation project is running alongside the pilots to examine and assess the effectiveness of the pilot activity and to understand how young people respond to the initiative.

The evaluation will report to the DFES in December 2008.
