HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 c49W
Mr. Craigen

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many TOPS schemes are now in operation; and whether any of them specifically cater for men or women over 45 years of age.

Mr. Golding

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that training is currently being provided in 467 different occupations in 2,447 training establishments throughout Great Britain. No training courses specifically cater for men and women over 45 years of age.
