HC Deb 02 July 1974 vol 876 c118W
Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of workers employed in the distributive trades are not covered by the Distributive Industry Training Board, as the training levy payable excludes firms with fewer than 10 workers or annual pay rolls of less than £9,000.

Mr. Harold Walker

The proportion of workers in the distributive industry whose employers are excluded from payment of levy is 31 per cent.
