Ms Glenda Jackson

[pursuant to her reply, 8 April 1998, c. 291–92]: The information in the table was incorrect, the following table gives the correct figures.

Our national advertising campaign features a range of voluntary and environmental organisations and from April will include two new television commercials to specifically promote these options. Inquiries generated in this way are answered by the New Deal Information Line and Website, for example by sending information packs. Factsheets and other publicity material aimed at both clients and option providers are also available through Jobcentres and local partner organisations. The New Deal Task Force is also working to raise the profile of these options.

Mr. Derek Foster

Mr. Andrew Smith

I have been asked to reply.

The list of environmental objectives, developed by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, against which Environment Task Force (ETF) bids will be assessed was published as an Annex to the specification for the ETF, which was issued by the Employment Service to organisations wishing to bid to deliver ETF provision.

A copy of the list has been placed in the Library.
