§ Mr. Arnold Shaw
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many applications for grants have been received by the Manpower Services Commission from voluntary service organisations; and how many new jobs have been created where such applications have been successful.
§ Mr. Golding
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that just over 6,000 applications for grants under the job creation programme have been received from voluntary service organisations. Those which were successful have created approximately 39,000 temporary jobs.
