16. Mr. John Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what is the expected number of school leavers who will join the labour market in July.

Mr. Squire

Latest forecasts suggest that, in England, 145,000 16-year-olds will leave full-time education during the summer. Almost all are expected to join the labour market.
