HM Treasury does not have its own scheme for work experience or internships, but participates in schemes run centrally by the Cabinet Office. Any individuals enquiring about internships are directed to the schemes in operation at the time, including Summer Diversity Internships and Government Economics Services Internships, and to the civil service website where details are available of internships offered by other Government Departments.

In respect of the number of UK students offered internships at HM Treasury since 8 May 2010, I refer the hon. Members to the answer I gave to Luciana Berger on 22 October 2010, Hansard, column 896W. Data on the country of origin and parliamentary constituency of such students are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
