HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 cc123-4W
34. Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement guaranteeing the future of the skillcentres, particularly that one at Maryport in Cumbria.

Mr. Jim Lester

I understand from the Manpower Services Commission that a paper listing 20 skillcentres and annexes as candidates for possible closure is to be considered by the commissioners on 28 January. It would be inappropriate for me to make any statement before decisions have been taken by the commission
