HC Deb 03 June 1981 vol 5 c355W
Mr. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what would be the cost of providing all 1980–81 school leavers with a one-year traineeship.

Mr. Peter Morrison

The cost of providing 12-month traineeships for all those leaving school in 1980–81 would depend on the nature of the training offered, the balance of funding between Government and industry, the level and nature of any allowances paid to trainees, the numbers actually leaving school and the numbers entering employment.
