HC Deb 03 March 1966 vol 725 cc385-6W
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 a

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.
