HC Deb 01 May 1980 vol 983 c592W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if he will list those skillcentres it is proposed to close over the next three years; how many retraining places will be lost as a result; how many jobs will be lost; how much it is estimated these closures will save; and how this figure was arrived at;

(2) what alternative training places will be provided in those places where skillcentres are to close; if he is satisfied that there are sufficient places available to meet demand and needs; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jim Lester

I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
