§ Mr. McWilliam
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will name those schemes now funded through the special temporary employment programme of the Manpower Services Commission whose funding will cease during the current financial year as a result of the cuts that have been made in the special temporary employment programme.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
[pursuant to his reply, 2 November 1979]: All schemes funded under the special temporary employment programme will continue to be funded until the expiry of the contract between their sponsors and the MSC. I regret that a list of current schemes running in areas of the country where STEP no longer applies and where contracts cannot be renewed could be made available only at disproportionate expense.
