§ Mr. Iorwerth Thomas
asked the Minister of Labour what proposals he has for improving the arrangements for giving assistance to firms towards the cost of training new labour in development districts.
§ Mr. Gunter
I have been reviewing the scheme under which my Department gives such assistance and I have come to the conclusion that it would be right to offer greater incentives. Accordingly I propose to introduce from 1st April improved rates of training grants, together with a386W
region were £18 16s. 2d. in October, 1965, the latest date for which information is available, compared with £19 11s. 9d. in the United Kingdom.
