HC Deb 24 January 2002 vol 378 c1096W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people are employed by the Department under the new deal for young people; and at what cost to public funds. [21319]

Mr. Denham

The Home Office currently employs a total of 11 people under the new deal for young people.

New deal recruits take up existing vacancies so extra costs are limited to the subsidy, where appropriate, and any additional training and development which may be needed. The costs of the latter cannot be readily identified.
