§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what have been the effects of the Manpower Services Commission's cutbacks in support for schemes jointly funded by the commission and the urban programme; and if he will make extra finance available through the community enterprise programme for these schemes to proceed.
§ Mr. Alison
On 15 December 1981 my right hon. Friend announced the expansion of the community enterprise programme in 1982–83 from 25,000 to 30,000 places.—Vol. 15, c. 153. I am not aware of any particular cutbacks affecting schemes jointly funded by the commission and the urban programme.
