HC Deb 31 March 1987 vol 113 cc458-9W
13. Mrs. Shields

asked the Paymaster General if he will make a statement on measures to prevent racial or sexual discrimination in Manpower Services Commission sponsored training schemes.

Mr. Lee

All training programmes sponsored by the MSC are equal opportunity programmes, open to all those who are eligible. Regardless of race, sex, religion or disability. All MSC contracts with training providers draw attention to the legislation covering race and sex discrimination and require them to comply with it. The MSC monitors its equal opportunities policy closely and underpins it with a wide range of administrative provisions.
