HC Deb 20 December 1985 vol 89 c399W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Paymaster General what special action he is taking to provide retraining for redundant fishermen in Great Grimsby.

Mr. Trippier

Under the Manpower Services Commission's local training grants scheme, a retraining package has recently been negotiated with a Grimsby employer which will result in up to 60 locally redundant fishermen being retrained and offered permanent employment in the offshore oil industry. Redundant fishermen may also be assisted through the commission's programme of enterprise skill and work preparation training for unemployed individuals.
