HC Deb 28 April 1981 vol 3 c383W
27. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what representations he has received about the future of the industrial training boards; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

My Department has received about 900 letters about the future of industrial training boards from organisations and individuals. The Manpower Services Commission, in the course of its review of the subject, has sought views from some 2,000 organisations.

We will take decisions when we have the commission's recommendations, and will announce them to the House.
