HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 c441W
37. Mr. Clemitson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many local authorities have co-operated in his Department's programme of industrial language training for immigrants.

Mr. John Fraser

Proposals by 24 local education authorities for schemes for language training at the place of work have been approved by the Government, and other authorities are considering the need for similar schemes. A small number of authorities whose schemes were approved have indicated, however, that they do not expect to introduce schemes in the current financial year, and I am keeping the position under close review.
