holding answer 4 February 2008

In February 2007 we took the decision not to proceed with the Youth Opportunity Card pilots and therefore no cards were issued. For details on the reasons for this and the cost of the card project, I refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 21 November 2007, Hansard, column 945W, to Mr. Hoban.
