HC Deb 19 March 1986 vol 94 c200W
Mr. Lawler

asked the Paymaster General if he is satisfied with the progress being made in Bradford to provide sufficient places under the two-year YTS due to commence on 1 April; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

Yes. Progress in setting up two-year YTS in Bradford has been excellent. Already by 25 February, the latest date for which statistics are available, 92 per cent. of the required places were definitely or likely to be provided. Around 93 per cent. of basic places have been found, together with 86 per cent. of premium places, which are designed to help young people and parts of the country with special needs. The position is being regularly monitored.
