44. Mr. Patrick Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of school leavers joined the youth training scheme or entered some form of further or higher education during the most recent 12-month period for which figures are available.

Mr. Peter Morrison

About 29 per cent. of young people leaving school in Great Britain during the year ending August 1984 were expected to enter a full-time course of further or higher education. It is estimated that a further 38 per cent. have entered the youth training scheme.
