§ Mr. Bright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what progress has been made in arranging for the staff in the skillcentres funded by the Manpower Services Commission to enlarge class sizes to permit the youth training scheme to operate.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
Agreement has recently been reached that young people's classes in skillcentres should operate with up to 16 places. This will help the newly established Skillcentre Training Agency to provide places for young people within the funding available for the youth training scheme.
