§ Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what would be the reduction in occupancy of the North Staffordshire rehabilitation centre if the experiment with alternative approaches to employment rehabilitation is introduced.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that the average occupancy level at its North Staffordshire employment rehabilitation centre over the last year has been 48. On the basis of the experimental proposals currently being considered it is likely that North Staffordshire ERC would have the equivalent of an occupancy level of 45.
