HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 cc432-3W
18. Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will ensure that the number of places to be allocated to school leavers under the recently announced Training Award Scheme is proportionate to the numbers unemployed in each respective area; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Harold Walker

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the level of unemployment amongst young persons is one of a number of factors the industrial training boards will take into consideration when allocating places under the Training Award Scheme.
