§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Lord Privy Seal what public funds are currently being paid to the Trades Union Congress for the training of overseas trades unionists: and what are his plans for the future or this grant.
§ Mr. Neil Marten
Up to £180,000 was committed by the previous Administration for 1979–80 and so is being made available, most of which will be used for the training of overseas trade unionists. I shall consider the future of this grant towards the end of the year.
