§ Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the target number for new training places in the Hull travel-to-work area; how many have been filled; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
The information is not available in the form requested. The target of new training places for the Yorkshire and Humberside region in the financial year 1982–83 is 9,740. By the end of January 1983 the total number of approvals was about 8,000, and about 6,500 young people had entered places.
New training places are high quality training opportunities which will be converted into places on the youth training scheme being introduced this year.
