Departmental Training

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 9 February 2009, Official Report, column 1689W, on departmental training, which Ministers took advice on (a) continuing professional development and (b) speeches; and what the cost was in each case. (265677)

The training referred to in my earlier answer of 9 February 2009, Official Report, column 1689W, was: advice on continuing professional development; and advice on speeches; and cost in total £650 and £2,115 respectively. Identifying Ministers who undertake training would, or would be likely to, discourage participation in future training sessions, acting as a disincentive for Ministers to undertake formal professional development.
