Would my hon. Friend agree that this has been one of the most exciting changes in youth work in recent years, and that if we are to make the best of the possibilities there must be the fullest consultation with the many people at national and local level who have been involved in making a success of developments in that work?

I agree that it is exciting work and I am going to great pains to consult as many people as possible before announcing any changes.
