HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 c121W
23. Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he plans to continue the job release scheme beyond 31 March 1980; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jim Lester

A decision about the future of the job release scheme will be made as part of the annual review of the special employment and training measures, which has not yet been completed. My right hon. Friend hopes to make an announcement about the scheme shortly.
