Mr. Stephen Twigg: In making its recommendations to encourage greater take up of Modern Apprenticeships, Sir John Cassels' Modern Apprenticeship Advisory Committee proposed the establishment of pre- employment provision for those young people not immediately able to enter a Modern Apprenticeship or other employment. The Learning and Skills Council and the Department have been working together over recent months with other relevant interests to develop a more effective set of arrangements in work-based learning that will enable more young people to progress to higher learning opportunities. To this end a pathfinder Entry to Employment programme will be introduced in the following areas from this August:
Central Birmingham and North Solihull
Portsmouth and the South East Hampshire area
Tyne and Wear (Newcastle and Gateshead).

that his father was unable to find a lawyer to represent him. He understood that his father had tried, without success, all the lawyers on our embassy list.
Following the meeting, embassy staff spoke with a local law firm on our list on 5 March 2002. Firstly, they advised us that any local lawyer would require a substantial fee in advance, and secondly, if Mr. Michael Clark were to recommence legal action, his appeal for clemency might not be considered by the Abu Dhabi authorities while proceedings were on-going. They also had no record of Michael Clark getting in touch with them previously.
We advised Michael Clark accordingly. We also reminded him that our staff are not able to appoint a lawyer on behalf of a British national. However, if he wished to pursue a legal case, our offer to assist putting him in touch with a local lawyer remained. We also said that it would be helpful to us if he could list the local lawyers he had already tried.
