HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c34W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if it is the Government's policy to make facilities for adult training and retraining available particularly in areas of high unemployment.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Training for adults in a wide range of occupations is currently provided throughout the country under the training opportunities scheme. One of the objectives of the adult training strategy which the Manpower Services Commission has recently recommended to the Government is to see that this training is properly linked to current or foreseeable local demand for skills. The Government are considering the commission's proposals.
