§ Mr. Evennett
asked the Paymaster General what representations he has received concerning the withdrawal of Manpower Services Commission funds from Job Generation Ltd.; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lee
The Job Generation Ltd. current community programme contract ends in June 1987 and the agency will not be renewed. The local MSC's community programme manager is currently seeking ways to redistribute these places amongst other providers within the Bexley area. This action should allow individual participants with a balance of time still outstanding to complete their 52 weeks on the programme.
The hon. Member wrote to me on 31 March about Job Generation Ltd.; a reply will be sent very soon.
