Future Jobs Fund: Oxfordshire

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions who in Oxfordshire will be responsible for administering and managing the Future Jobs Fund; and what estimate she has made of the proposed budget for the fund in Oxfordshire. (284965)

The Future Jobs Fund will be managed centrally by the Department for Work and Pensions and every Government office in England will be able to help potential bidders to develop their bids.

As it is a competitive bidding process, we are not ring-fencing funding for any particular region or area, however greater emphasis will be given to bids from areas of high worklessness and with high populations of eligible young people.
