Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many individuals have worked in his Department on (a) paid work experience or internship placements and (b) unpaid work experience or internships in each of the past three years; on average how many hours a week were worked by such people in each year; what types of work each was involved in; what proportion were in full-time education; what proportion did not complete their set period of work experience; and how much those who received remuneration were paid on average per week in each year.

Placements within DEFRA are arranged locally between students and the area in which they are seeking to gain work experience. As a consequence, the information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
