HC Deb 28 June 1988 vol 136 cc170-1W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list those community benefit schemes under the community programme in the Glasgow and Clydebank area which (a) do and (b) do not meet the requirements of the programme; and if he will make funds available to enable those schemes listed under (b) to continue.

Mr. Lang

The Training Commission is currently considering applications from organisations to participate in employment training. It is too early to say how many of the existing community programme schemes will continue under the new programme. I hope that those bodies which have operated successfully under the community programme and have yet to apply will consider adapting to the requirements of employment training.
