HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c130W
46. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that institutes of further education in areas of high unemployment, such as Merseyside, should be provided with the resources necessary for their participation in the new training initiative.

Mr. William Shelton

The scheme is to be funded by the Manpower Services Commission. I believe that adequate resources will be available. The precise financial arrangements are a matter for negotiation between the commission and scheme sponsors on the one hand, and local education authorities on the other.
