§ Mr. Foster
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish further details of the implications of his decision to reduce funding to the industrial training boards by £9.8 million.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the information is not yet available. The industrial training boards are currently considering the matter and have yet to decide what activities will be affected by the reduction in financial support from public funds in the current financial year.
