Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to the Answer of 29 February 2008, Official Report, column 2022W, on departmental manpower, how many of the employees under 18 years of age are receiving at least one day’s training per week. (204935)

Two of these employees are on three year engineering apprenticeships and have been receiving the equivalent of one day’s training per week. The three year apprenticeship is considered to be all training, whether on-the-job working in various sections or at college. The third employee is on a fixed term contract and not on an apprentice scheme.
