§ Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on his meeting with the Scottish Council of Voluntary Organisations on 22 June to discuss employment training; and what proposals he has for action.
§ Mr. Lang
I met a delegation including representatives from the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations. We discussed the effect of the change to employment training on the voluntary sector and on community care projects. I invited the voluntary sector to continue to consider adapting its various projects so that they might take advantage of funding under employment training.
