§ Mr. Willis
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list for each of the pilot areas for the New Deal for 18 to 24 year olds, how many of those eligible failed to join any of the four available categories. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
Statistical information on the progress of those joining the New Deal in the Pathfinder areas to 31 March is available in the Library. The bulk of those commencing the New Deal during the period were still in the New Deal Gateway, the period of up to 4 months help before New Deal participants start on New Deal options.
