HC Deb 25 February 1971 vol 812 cc202-3W
38. Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make it a condition of future loans to the Construction Industry Training Board that it pays interest to building contractors, covering the period between the due date of payment of the 1969–70 grants and the date upon which off-setting payments are due to be made by contractors for the year 1970–71.

Mr. Bryan

I do not envisage the question arising of a future loan of the type recently made.

44. Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will consider exempting or allowing relatively small firms to opt out of the Shipbuilding Industry Training Board.

Mr. Bryan

As my right hon. Friend said in reply to the hon. Member for Leek (Mr. Knox) on 23rd February, he is looking for a significantly greater exemption of small firms from levy schemes.
