§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many people are employed by the Department under the new deal for young people; and at what cost to public funds. 
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
None at present. The Wales Office is staffed entirely by secondees from other organisations and so does not undertake its own external recruitment. But I should be delighted if people employed through new deal were to offer themselves for secondment to my Department.
