HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 cc187-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many applications have been received by the Manpower Services Commission in Thanet to date for financial assistance towards projects under the youth opportunities programme and the special temporary employment programme; how many of these applications have been accepted; and how many jobs are associated with these projects, respectively.


I understand from the Manpower Services Commission that, since the inception of the youth opportunities programme on 1st April 1978, 25 applications have been approved for schemes in Thanet, providing a total of 41 places for young people. No schemes have yet been approved under the special temporary employment programme for Thanet, and comprehensive statistics are not kept on the location of schemes which are not approved.

Forward to
