§ 21. Mr. Ray Powell
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement about the provision of training through Manpower Services Commission skillcentres in the current and the next financial year.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
The Skillcentre Training Agency expects to provide training for around 28,500 people under the training opportunities scheme through its 67 skillcentres and 20 annexes. Training is also provided under the youth training scheme and direct to employers. The agency's plans for 1984–85 have not yet been finalised, but the level of business will be substantially influenced by the amount and type of training which the Manpower Services Commission's training division wishes to purchase.
§ 33. Ms. Richardson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will provide crèche facilities at skillcentres.
