Peter Luff: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what assessment he has made of the Programme Making and Special Events sector's ability to migrate into different interleaved frequencies for use of wireless microphones and related technologies since notice of the clearance of existing frequencies was provided in (a) 2005 and (b) 2007. 
Mr. Timms: The issues surrounding the clearance of the interleaved frequencies used by the Programme Making and Special Events sector, as part of Digital Switchover, have been the subject of extensive consultation by Ofcom. Ofcom's analysis and the responses have been the subject of discussion between BIS and Ofcom and between BIS and the PMSE sector. The Government are currently considering the views of the PMSE sector in the context of the support to be offered in clearing channels 61, 62 and 69 as set out in its Digital Britain report.
Robert Neill: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much each regional development agency has allocated for spending on advertising, marketing, communications and public relations in 2009-10; what companies each agency has contracted to provide services relating to such matters; what the monetary value is of each such contract; and what services are provided under each such contract. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: Each regional development agency is structured differently to reflect regional priorities. As a result, the information requested is not uniformly recorded or comparable. Each RDA publishes its budget in their annual reports, which are available on the website of each agency and include details of administrative spending.
To provide information for this current financial year, including disaggregated data, could create a misleading impression for the year as a whole and would incur significant and disproportionate costs.

Mr. Willetts: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many and what proportion of people aged 16 to 24 were not in education, employment or training in each (a) region and (b) local authority area in each quarter of the last 10 years. 
Kevin Brennan: The following table gives the number and percentage of people aged 16 to 24 not in education, employment or training for each region of England for every quarter from quarter two 2000 to quarter three 2009. These estimates are from the Labour Force Survey.
The Labour Force Survey sample is not large enough to provide quarterly estimates for small geographies such as local authority areas. We are able to give annual estimates for local authorities from the Annual Population Survey, which has a larger sample; for annual estimates for local education authorities from 2000 to 2008. I refer the hon. Member to the answers given on 21 July 2009, Official Report, column 1752W, 24 February 2009, Official Report, column 618W, and 26 November 2008, Official Report, column 1721W.
