Lord Monks: ...the Minister for her conscientious reply. Those who await her follow-up points in a letter do so with bated breath. I thank my noble friend Lord Young for his remarks. I am not sure that he got apprenticeship to be sexy, but he keeps trying and is always very interesting on this subject. I thank everybody who contributed to this important debate.

I hope that the autumn statement on 3 December will indeed concentrate people’s mind on that, and on the opportunity to have 3 million more apprenticeships over the next Parliament, as set out by the Conservative party. I am sure we shall all want to debate these things.

Baroness Prosser: ...in the league tables is a hugely important pressure on them. Together, those two things deter many schools from advising pupils of the opportunities maybe to study BTEC subjects, applying for apprenticeships, or moving on to further education colleges.

As he knows, we have seen 1.8 million apprenticeships start under this Government in the past four and half years, which is a dramatic increase. That can benefit all industries, but it is open to him to pursue the debate he calls for.

The national minimum wage was a great achievement by the previous Labour Government, and I pay tribute not only to...

David Cameron: I congratulate my hon. Friend on all the work he does locally to help promote jobs, apprenticeships and training. He is absolutely right, and there has been a 56% decline in unemployment in his constituency, but let me stress that there is still more work to be done. We have got to stick to our long-term economic plan. We are not immune from pressures, including the problems in the eurozone,...

Stephen Farry: ...work or the areas in which they are employed, where they are overqualified. That can have knock-on consequences elsewhere, in displacing other people's opportunities. Through what we are doing in careers, apprenticeships and investing in further education and higher education, we are trying to drive that situation out of our economy. We all stand to benefit if we get it right.
