HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c128W
32. Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he is satisfied that the colleges of technology will be able to meet the extra training demands imposed on them by the youth training scheme.

34. Mr. Colvin

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is satisfied that resources in educational establishments are sufficient to meet the training demands of the new youth training scheme.

Mr. William Shelton

Yes. I am satisfied that adequate financial resources can be made available through the Manpower Services Commission to enable colleges of further education to contribute to these schemes, under arrangements agreed with the local authorities. I am also satisfied that, in general, the education system has available, or can find, staff accommodation and other resources of the necessary scale, nature and quality. The Department is in close dialogue with the MSC and the local authority associations, and my right hon. Friend hopes shortly to issue a circular.
