  • Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Employment Agencies 29 Jan 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, how many staff in his Department were recruited through employment or recruitment agencies in each year since 2010-11.
  • Backbench Business: Young People in Care 27 Jan 2015

    I know that the Minister is aware of the shortage of CAMHS workers. He will appreciate that unless that is addressed, it will be difficult for him to live up to what he has just pledged. What work is he doing with colleagues at the Department of Health to ensure that there is an increase in the number of staff who are available to deliver what he has promised?
