HC Deb 30 April 1984 vol 59 cc33-4W

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what level of Manpower Services Commission funding in East Anglia is directed at courses especially for women; and if he will make a statement.

Mr.Peter Morrison

Within the training opportunities scheme the Manpower Services Commission offers a modest national programme of training to meet the special needs of women seeking to return to work after a period of domestic responsibility. At present there are no such courses running in East Anglia.
