§ 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.
