§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what information he collates on the level of financial balances on the books of each of the training and enterprise councils at their financial year-end 1995–96; and what consultations he has had with each TEC concerning the levels of those balances. 
§ Mr. Hague
My Department receives copies of each Welsh TEC's published annual report and accounts supplemented by more detailed financial returns required under the TEC operating agreement. Information for 1995–96 is due by the end of July 1996. From 1995–96 the returns will be collated into an All-Wales account which will be audited by the National Audit Office and published. The Department discuss TEC balances on a regular basis.
