§ Mr. Butler
asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects to announce rates of allowance and other details of the job release scheme beyond March 1986; and if the scheme will continue to apply to 64-year-old able-bodied men.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
I refer my hon. Friend to my reply on 18 November at column 38. An announcement on the rates of allowance will be made in due course.
