Child employment permits

Lucas Johnston made this Freedom of Information request to Lancashire County Council as part of a batch sent to 149 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Lucas Johnston to read recent responses and update the status.

To whom it concerns,

I'm researching for a project, and was wondering if I could get as much of the following information on child employment permits as you have on record:

1) How many total child employment permits have been granted each year since 2013?
2) How many of these were for young people aged under 16 years old?
3) How many of these were for young people aged 16-18 years old?

Separately,
4) How many people aged 11-16 years old fall within your Local Authority area?
5) How many people aged 16-18 years old fall within your Local Authority area?

Yours faithfully,
Lucas Johnston

young people who are also 16 years of age and of compulsory school age, we
are unable to supply a breakdown of numbers issued by age group (question
