20. To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills, what recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of legislation on child employment and child performances. (146038)

We have not carried out a recent assessment of legislation on the employment of children. The Government continue to focus at all times on how to deliver the outcomes we want to see for all our children, as expressed in our ‘Every Child Matters’ programme. Up-to-date Government guidance on child employment will be issued within the next year.
