HC Deb 18 January 1988 vol 145 c228W
14. Mr. Robert G. Hughes

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what discussions he has had with representatives of the building industry regarding the employment and training of local labour in inner city areas.

Mr. Newton

I am frequently in contact with representatives from the building industry, and take every opportunity to emphasise that helping to train local people on local building projects is one important way of giving them a sense of commitment to improving their own environment as well as increasing the availability of important skills for the industry.
