HC Deb 23 February 1984 vol 54 c623W
18. Mr. Nellist

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when, and to what level, he intends to raise the present allowance of £25 per week paid to trainees on the youth training programme.

Mr. Butler

The allowance for youth training programme trainees in Northern Ireland is the same as that payable under the youth training scheme in Great Britain. There are no immediate plans to increase it.
