HC Deb 04 December 1981 vol 14 c251W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many young people are currently employed on farms under Manpower Services Commission schemes, and under schemes other than those funded by the agricultural training board.

Mr. Alison

Information in the precise form requested is not available. However, in November there were around 9,000 trainees in the youth opportunities programme occupying places in agriculture, forestry and fishing schemes.
