HC Deb 26 April 1990 vol 171 c319W
Ms. Short

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment in what circumstances training and enterprise councils can allow their providers to charge YT or ET trainees for the provision of protective clothing and equipment; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholls

The TEC operating agreement provides mandatory requirements for the health, safety and welfare of trainees. In particular, it requires TECs to ensure provision of necessary protective clothing and equipment, so far as possible without charge to the trainee.
