HC Deb 28 February 1984 vol 55 c120W
Mr. Dover

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what will be the level of the Government's financial commitment to the youth training scheme in the financial year 1984–85; and whether he will make an announcement about the sums of money to be paid to youth training scheme managing agents and sponsors in 1984–85.

Mr. Peter Morrison

[pursuant to his reply, 27 February 1984, c. 13]: The recent White Paper on the Government's expenditure plans (Cmnd. 9143) includes £880 million for the youth training scheme in 1984–85, including administration of the scheme. This figure is subject to revision in the Estimate which is due to be published on 13 March. I am considering the level of grant to managing agents and sponsors for 1984–85 in the light of recommendations recently received from the Manpower Services Commission.
