HC Deb 08 November 1974 vol 880 c238W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how much money will be spent in the current year on industrial training and retraining under Government auspices; and how this compares with Germany and France.

Mr. Harold Walker

I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that expenditure for Great Britain in the current financial year 1974–75 is estimated to be £91 million. This covers Exchequer expenditure only. I regret that corresponding figures for Germany and France are not available to me.
