HC Deb 04 May 1976 vol 910 cc319-20W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the total expenditure of the industry training boards in 1974–75; how this compares with expenditure in 1972–73 and 1973–74; and what are the activities on which the additional expenditure has been incurred.

Mr. Moyle

Following is the information:

1972–73 2,175,933
1973–74 2,336,332
1974–75 2,664,447

Apart from the effects of inflation, the increase in expenditure has resulted from the opening of a new training centre and an increase in the direct and advisory training services offered by industrial training boards in Northern Ireland.
