HC Deb 14 May 1981 vol 4 cc315-6W
Mr. Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is yet ready to publish proposals on an Open Tech.

Mr. Peter Morrison

A consultative document containing proposals for an Open Tech programme is being published by the Manpower Services Commission today. A copy is being placed in the Library. This is an important initiative calling for close co-operation between industry and the education service. I am pleased to say that the Secretary of State for Education and Science and I on behalf of colleagues have been able to commend the proposals for discussion. Further development is subject to comments received by the end of September this year and to the availability of resources.
