HC Deb 07 November 1995 vol 265 c840W
20. Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans she has to give pupils at secondary schools the opportunity for direct experience in the workplace. [40119]

Mr. Paice

We have asked training and enterprise councils and their local partners to encourage work experience for pupils and have made funds available specifically to support it for all in their last year of compulsory schooling. The need for further action is being kept under review.
