§ Mr. Sanders
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what budget he has agreed for the estates element of the South Devon District New Deal Delivery plan. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
The New Deal for 18 to 24–year-olds does not commence in the South Devon District until 1 April 1998. At this stage no budget has been agreed for estates work in that District. The needs of the South Devon offices will be assessed in the near future and an appropriate budget agreed for any changes required.
