Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 6 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many employees were involved in the Enterprise Summer School scheme in 2006; and how many are expected to be involved in 2007. (138020)

I have been asked to reply.

We know from Young Enterprise that 236 businesses and other organisations were involved in the funding of the summer schools Pathfinders, and that on average at least two staff members from each company/organisation volunteered, so we would estimate that 472 individual employees were involved.

We have no plans at present for a second round of such enterprise summer schools in 2007, but are considering options for future years.
