§ Mr. Peter Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what representations he has received from operators of activity holidays regarding the impact on staffing levels of the national minimum wage and the Working Time Directive. 
§ Mr. Chris Smith
I have received no representations from operators of activity holidays regarding the impact of the Working Time Directive. Late in 1998 we received a copy of the British Activity Holiday Association's comments on the then draft National Minimum Wage Regulations. These comments concerned the accommodation offset.
