§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he has yet been able to fill the vacancy for an instructor in industrial testing and service mechanics at Slough skillcentre; what are the prospects for an improvement in the number of places available on this course; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
I understand that the Manpower Services Commission has not yet found a suitable candidate for this post but hopes to do so shortly. Once an appointment is made, the class will cater for 12 trainees. There are no immediate plans to increase the number of places on this course beyond that level.
