§ Mrs. Ray Michie
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has given to the provision of funding for Crossroads (Scotland) from a source other than the Manpower Services Commission.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
[holding answer 22 July 1988]: I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Clydebank and Milngavie (Mr. Worthington) on 28 June, at column 177. I understand that a number of 338W Crossroads schemes are negotiated with the Training Commission about participation in employment training and I hope that others will follow suit.
