HC Deb 28 April 1976 vol 910 c98W
Mr. Orbach

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many persons living within the Stockport metropolitan area are at present engaged in retraining activities.

Mr. Golding

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that, on 23rd April 1976, 70 men and 153 women living in the Stockport metropolitan area were receiving training in training establishments under the training opportunities scheme in the area covered by the TSA's Manchester district office. It is not possible, without disproportionate cost, to give figures of people living in the Stockport area who are being trained in other parts of the country.
