HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 c123W
31. Mr. Woodall

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will ensure that no cuts will be made in Government aid to industrial training boards; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jim Lester

I regret that I cannot give the assurance sought. If any further economies have to be made in public expenditure, I would not expect aid to industrial training boards to be excluded from consideration.
