§ Paul Holmes
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills pursuant to his Answer of 1 September 2003,Official Report, column 774W, on the Training and Enterprise Council, when he intends to publish the consolidated accounts for the Training and Enterprise Councils for 2001; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Ivan Lewis
Only the TECs who operated Group structures produced consolidated accounts for the period April 2000 to March 2001, copies of these are held by the Department. The Department has only ever provided aggregate TEC/COTE Income and Expenditure Accounts (for England and Wales). The last set covering 1999–2000 were published and laid in the House on March 2002. Due to reduced resources within the TEC net work and the work being undertaken by many of them prior to entering liquidation, there was insufficient information available within the necessary timescale to provide the aggregate Income and Expenditure account for April 00 to March 01.
