Arts: Further Education

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether his Department has commissioned research on the extent to which further education institutions are equipping students with the skills needed to help them make a contribution to the creative economy. [227186]

Barbara Follett: My Department has not commissioned any direct research in to the extent to which further education institutions are equipping students with the skills they need to help them make a contribution to the creative economy.

However, in order to meet commitment 4 of Creative Britain: New talents for the New Economy, my Department has commissioned research into the landscape of employer engagement in higher education subjects closely related to the creative industries. The findings of this research,
17 Oct 2008 : Column 1520W
due to report in summer 2009, will be used to demonstrate how to forge stronger links between higher education institutions, further education colleges, creative professionals, the creative and cultural industries and the wider community.

Departmental Accountancy

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what balances his Department held with (a) other central Government Departments and (b) local authorities at the end of each financial year since 1997. [225695]

Barbara Follett: The table sets out the Department's debtor and creditor balances with central Government Departments and local authorities since 2003. Financial Reporting Manual (FReM) did not require disclosure of these balances in earlier years and it would incur disproportionate cost to obtain them.
