HC Deb 30 April 1998 vol 311 c202W
Mr. Livsey

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) how many training providers are currently on the promotional file of Business Connect; [40108]

(2) how many training providers have received contracts from each TEC in Wales for the year 1998–99. [40111]

Mr. Hain

This information is not held centrally. However the Department will be compiling a training database with the assistance of TECs in Wales for 1998–99 in preparation for the planned start of inspection of vocational training by OHMCI from 1 April 1999. This is subject to the passage of the necessary enabling vires for OHMCI in the Teacher and Higher Education Bill which is currently before the House.
