To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what assessment he has made of job prospects for graduates in the current economic downturn. (287052)

These are undoubtedly tough times for graduates but we should not forget that a degree remains a strong investment. Businesses are continuing to recruit through the downturn, and the Government are committed to helping graduates. Working with employers and universities, we are boosting the number of internships and offering more loans to support further study. So graduates should remain positive.
