§ Mr. Keetch
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will publish league tables of units of delivery for the New Deal in such a form as to enable a comparison to be made between the performance of the private sector, the Employment Service and other providers. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
[holding answer 14 December 1998]: Yesterday I published performance tables for all units of delivery. The tables compare progress at local level of all those young people who entered the New Deal in April—the first month of full national operation—and in particular shows what proportion of those young people has moved into jobs. Copies will be placed in the Libraries.
