§ Mr. Wareing
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he intends to discuss with the chairman of the Manpower Services Commission recent changes in community programme regulations as they affect married women; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
My right hon. Friend and I meet the chairman of the Manpower Services Commission frequently to discuss many matters including the community programme. We are satisfied that the recent changes will ensure that places go to those most in need of help.
