First Minister Carwyn Jones has ordered a full investigation into allegations that a Welsh Government-supported website offered young people advice that included:
- How to set up your own escort agency
- How to set up your own lap dancing club
- How to become a stripper
He was told in the Senedd that links to factsheets on all three topics had appeared on the Big Ideas Wales website, which aims to help young people start their own businesses.
These are legal enterprises but are they the kind of aspirational career opportunities that the Welsh Government should be actively promoting to young people?
No. I was made aware of this some 10 minutes before I came into the chamber. I will ensure that there is a full investigation into how this happened.
Links to the factsheets are not currently available on the Big Ideas Wales website
