§ 13. Mr. Gwilym Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied with the number of training places in Wales in the current year and the number planned for 1986–87; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Yes. This year the Manpower Services Commission expects that around 10,200 adults will start on training courses. The provisional planned figure for next year is around 14,000, which represents a three-fold increase since 1984–85. The two-year YTS will commence in April and 27,000 young people are expected to participate in 1986–87.
