Mr. Golding

Of approximately 5,000 employment agencies and businesses currently licensed under the Employment Agencies Act 1973, 144 applied for their licences to cover the finding ofau pair positions overseas. 97 of these agencies have yet to receive a full inspection under my Department's programme of inspections which began in April this year.
