§ Mr. McMahon
asked the Prime Minister what were the reasons for the closure of youth opportunities projects and in particular, the youth information project in Glasgow, Govan.
§ The Prime Minister
I am informed by the MSC that each project is considered on its merits and in relation to the needs of young people in the area. The decision not to continue the Govan youth information project was taken in the light of an emerging surplus of youth opportunities168W programme places in the area, and the need to redistribute places elsewhere; the young people on the scheme will be absorbed into other schemes run by the Community Service Agency which sponsored the project.
