§ Q106. Mr. Patrick Thompson
asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement about the employment and training opportunities which exist for young people in British industry.
§ The Prime Minister
Although only industry and commerce can create sustainable jobs, the Government are concerned to see that there are constructive and worthwhile opportunities for young people to have proper training whether employed or unemployed. Much has already been achieved, particularly through the youth training scheme, and the Government are currently reviewing the range of provision for young people. But employers will continue to have a key role in providing training, if it is to be relevant to industry's needs.
