To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on the establishment of employment zones. [147942]

Ms Jowell

The 15 employment zones have got off to a very encouraging start and the numbers of people getting and keeping work are exceeding expectations. Individual needs are being met through personal job accounts and strong local leadership. We will in due course evaluate and spread the good practice which emerges.
