§ Mr. Livsey
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) how many training providers are currently on the promotional file of Business Connect; 
(2) how many training providers have received contracts from each TEC in Wales for the year 1998–99. 
§ 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.
