HC Deb 04 February 1971 vol 810 c434W
77. Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what action he is now taking to help the Construction Industry Training Board resolve their financial difficulties.

Mr. Bryan

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Harrow, West (Mr. John Page) on 14th January, 1971. To allow the board to take advantage of a subsequent change in interest rates he has since agreed to a slightly shorter period of repayment of the Government loan. The board will now begin to repay this debt, with interest, on 30th June, 1971, and complete repayment on 31st December, 1975.—[Vol. 809, c. 128–9.]
