To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on progress in the Cornwall New Deal Pathfinder. [40057]

Mr. Andrew Smith

It is, of course, early days for this ambitious undertaking, but I am encouraged by the start to the Cornwall New Deal Pathfinder. 1,919 Clients have been invited to initial Gateway interview. The destinations of the 380 who have left the Gateway are as follows:

106 into unsubsidised jobs;140 into subsidised jobs;76 into the Full Time Education and Training Options;58 into the Voluntary Sector and Environment Task Force Option.
