HC Deb 28 July 1982 vol 28 c569W
Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he will be sending local education authorities a circular in relation to the new training initiative; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Shelton

Yes, my right hon. Friend has been consulting local authority associations and other relevant interests on the draft of a circular and hopes shortly to issue the final version. A copy of the draft has been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. The education service has an important role to play in all aspects of the new training initiative, particularly the youth training scheme.
