HC Deb 10 July 1984 vol 63 c461W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what progress is being made in identifying and rectifying skill shortages in the information technology industry; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Butcher

As my hon. Friend knows, I am currently chairman of a committee studying the shortage of information technology skills.

The committee is progressing well and I hope to lay before the House a copy of the interim report before the summer recess.
