The Minister has given us a very detailed and thorough critique of Alison Wolf’s work. Because it is thorough and detailed, he will no doubt give us his estimate of the proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds in work who are in part-time work. I guess that most part-time workers are not aged between 16 and 18: they work part-time because they have all kinds of other commitments. Can he give us any feel for the proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds in work who are in part-time work?
