HC Deb 24 March 1981 vol 1 c296W
35. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects to announce the results of his review of training; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

I have asked the Manpower Services Commission to undertake a review of the future training needs of each sector of industry and to report to me in the summer. I shall consider the results of the commission's review carefully, and then announce my decisions on institutional arrangements as soon as I can.

I am also considering, with the commission, what action is needed to make industrial training more responsive to the needs of industry and individuals. We hope to publish in the near future, with the commission, a document setting out our proposals as a basis for consultation.
