§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the degree of autonomy to be retained by industrial boards under his proposals contained in the document, "Training for the Future"; what changes he is considering in his proposals; and how the proposed new arrangements compare with existing practices.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
Following full consultations, the proposals made last February in "Training for the Future" have been modified in important respects. My right hon. Friend announced his decisions in statements made on 8th August and 22nd November. These give the information required by the hon. Member and I have arranged for him to be sent copies.
