1 MSC accident figures for YTS have been compiled on a similar basis to those prepared by the Health and Safety Executive on employed persons. However, the MSC's figures will include a number of accidents during scheme time and accidents to trainees in educational establishments which may not have been reportable to the Health and Safety Executive had the individuals been employed.
2 Each of these figures includes one road traffic accident.
3 These figures are provisional and will be subject to change as further information becomes available.

Mr. Nellist

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The booklet "Action for Cities" was produced jointly by my Department and that of my hon. Friend the Minister for Housing, Urban Affairs and Construction. The total cost of production was £32,800, of which the cost of printing 25,000 copies was £25,600. These costs have been shared equally between the Department of Employment and the Department of the Environment.

This is a minute proportion of the public expenditure on the Government programmes which the booklet explains in order to improve take-up of and participation in these programmes.
