§ Mr. Freeman
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make it his policy to allocate funds for the proposed pilot adult training loans scheme on a county-by-county basis according to the proportionate size of the local education budget.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
Decisions about the proposed pilot scheme for training loans will not be taken until after the period for consultation ends on 31 January. We have noted our hon. Friend's suggestion and will give it due consideration.
