Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the response to his Department's community programme; how many schemes are currently in operation; and how many people are involved.

Mr. Alison

I am satisfied with the operation of the community programme. By 31 March 1983, 4,262 projects had been approved, with a total of 80,119 places. Of these, 3,068 projects were actually in operation and 39,527 places had been filled.
