Training: Logistics

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much the Government has spent on improving the skills of the workforce in the logistic transport industry in Wales in each of the last five years. (285562)

I have been asked to reply.

UK Government funding for Skills for Logistics, the Sector Skills Council for the logistic transport industry, is provided through the UK Commission for Employment and Skills. Over the last five financial years, they have provided the following funding for the UK as a whole:

£ million

2004-05

1.519

2005-06

2.127

2006-07

2.352

2007-08

1.940

2008-09

2.438

As Skills for Logistics is allocated resources to provide training across the UK, spending in Wales could only be disaggregated at disproportionate cost.
