§ Mr. Ashton
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many unemployed workers registered in Worksop and Retford have been offered work under the community enterprise programme since it was launched on 1 April 1981; and how many will be offered opportunities in the next 12 months.
§ Mr. Alison
I regret that statistics are not maintained separately for Worksop and Retford.
In Nottinghamshire from 1 April 1981 to 31 March 1982 it is intended to offer about 980 places under the community enterprise programme. It is expected that a similar number of places will be available from 1 April 1982 to 31 March 1983.
