§ 18. Mr. John Page
asked the Secretary State for Employment when he is expecting to make an announcement following his review of industrial training boards.
§ Mr. R. Carr
The review is making good progress, but the issues are important and complex and I wish to consider them very carefully before coming to conclusions. I cannot yet judge exactly how long this will take, but I shall aim to issue a consultative document well before the Summer Recess.
I shall consider meanwhile whether there is any interim guidance I can issue to the training boards.
