[pursuant to his reply, 20 January 1986, c. 45]: The information is not available in the precise form requested. Information is not available for the skill categories requested for the youth training scheme and the majority of adult training programmes and is only available for the job training scheme by training division area.
The table shows the numbers we expect to train in 1985–86 under the relevant categories of the Manpower Services Commission's job training scheme in the training division areas which include Plymouth, Rosyth and Fife. In total, in these areas we plan to train some 5,600 people through our locally delivered adult training schemes and some 14,900 young people under the youth training scheme in 1985–86.
