HC Deb 02 July 1971 vol 820 c213W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Employment why the Distributive Industry Training Board requires a 40 per cent. increase in levy; how much this increase will produce for the Board; and how the extra revenue will be disbursed.

Mr. Bryan

The Board has sought an increase in levy to enable it to fulfil obligations placed upon it by the Industrial Training Act, 1964. The additional revenue amounting to £3 millions should ensure that its operations are placed upon a sound financial fiasis.
