Business: Education

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) schools and (b) businesses were involved in the Enterprise Summer School Scheme in West Lancashire constituency in 2006; and how many (i) have been and (ii) are expected to be involved in the scheme in 2007. (143529)

I have been asked to reply.

The experimental 2006 Enterprise Summer School Scheme was managed for the Government by Young Enterprise, a leading educational charitable organisation. Nationally, we do not hold local information at the level of detail requested.

In light of evaluation, we are now considering how to develop enterprise summer schools. We have no plans for a further round of enterprise summer schools in 2007, but are developing options for future years.
