§ Mr. Freeman
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with progress in expanding the community programme.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
We have announced that the community programme would be expanded by 100,000 places to 230,000 filled places by the end of May 1986, and set an interim target for December 1985 of 180,000 filled places. Latest available figures are that 162,707 places have now been approved.
