To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will meet the Prince's Trust to discuss the findings of its report, "Reaching the Hardest to Reach". [159496]

Margaret Hodge

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State meets the Prince of Wales on an occasional basis. My right hon. Friend has received a copy of the report "Reaching the Hardest to Reach" and it is being considered by Ministers. Ministers and officials in the Department for Education and Skills are in regular contact with the trust to discuss areas of mutual interest and co-operation, including the trust's work on reaching disaffected young people.
