HC Deb 15 October 1996 vol 282 c867W
Mr. Rowlands

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the percentage of school leavers who have entered work without recognised training or further education. [40486]

Mr. Jonathan Evans

The information requested is not collected by the Welsh Office. However, the Wales Association of Heads of Careers Companies has published figures showing that, of 16-year-olds in Wales in 1995, approximately 5 per cent. entered employment without any planned training.
