Mr. Golding

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the cost of administering the job creation programme in the period ended 31st March 1976 was £216,000. It is estimated that the cost in the present financial year will be around £600,000. Costs for Wales, Scotland and England are not separately identified.
