Mr. Michael

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many employees of(a) the Prison Service and (b) his Department have been sent on courses run by Landmark Education; and if he will list the numbers in each grade in each case; [37998]

(2) what is the cost to public funds of sending employees of the Prison Service on courses run by Landmark Education to date; and what cost is projected for 1996–97 and 1997–98; [37999]

(3) what inquiries have been made as to the links between Landmark Education and Erhard Seminar Training in the United States. [38000]

Mr. Howard

[holding answer 23 July 1996]: The information requested is not readily available from individual Prison Service establishments and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. There is no record of any member of Home Office staff outside Prison Service establishments attending any course run by Landmark Education over the past three years. No inquiries have been made about this organisation.
