§ Mr. Haynes
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether the Eamid training group based in Ashfield will continue to be considered a voluntary training organisation; or whether a new role is envisaged for it under the proposed national training scheme; and, if so, what it is.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
Membership of the Eamid training group will continue to be voluntary, as will that of other group training schemes. We hope that, through providing training facilities and services to their members, group training schemes will help carry forward the new training initiative.436W
