§ 19. Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Employment 172W whether he will take steps to ensure that there is greater flexibility in the provision of Manpower Services Commission funds for construction projects, so as to allow for interim payments to be made in advance of completion.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that interim payments are available to project sponsors under the youth opportunities and special temporary employment programmes whatever the nature of the project.
