§ Mr. Ralph Howell
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many people were trained under TOP's auspices in 1975 and during the first six months of 1976 in skills connected with the construction industry: and how many of 88W these people were placed in employment connected with their training within three months of completion of their relevant course.
§ Mr. Golding
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the number of people who completed a course of training in construction trades under the Training Opportunities Scheme was as follows:
1975 6,773 1st January 1976 to 30th June 1976 3,932
Information about the number of construction trades trainees who entered employment in their trade within three months of completion of their training is not readily available and could only be produced at disproportionate cost.
