HC Deb 26 October 1971 vol 823 c312W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what financial support is given by his Department directly or indirectly in running courses provided by the Local Government Industrial Training Board for directors of social services at a cost of £215 per person excluding travel and accommodation, and in supporting the Local Government Industrial Training Board; if he will give a breakdown of the costs of this £215 course; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

The Local Government Training Board is a voluntary body financed by levy on member local authorities. The expenditure ranks for Rate Support Grant purposes but otherwise the courses in question received no financial aid from Government Departments. Charges for its courses are a matter for the Board.
