HC Deb 03 March 1981 vol 1000 cc73-4W
Mr. Les Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) what monitoring of companies' use of funds available under work experience and other schemes for youth employment is undertaken by the Manpower Services Commission and his Department to ensure that they do not displace full-time male or female employees or affect their rates of pay and working conditions; and whether he is satisfied with these arrangements in view of representations made to him by hon. Members;

(2) how many and what kind of representations he has received from hon. Members and trade unions about the misuse by companies of funds available under work experience and youth opportunities programme schemes for using young people in place of normal full-time employees; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

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