§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list, by county, the number of YTS trainees in Wales and the number of YTS vacancies.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Figures for YTS trainees are not available on a county basis. The Training Agency in Wales provides statistics on an area office basis only which refer to the area in which training takes place rather than where the trainee lives.
At the end of January 1990, the numbers in training in Wales were 23,330 comprising South and Mid Glamorgan 7,337; Gwent 3,813; West Glamorgan and Dyfed 5,826; and Gwynedd, Clwyd and Powys 6,354.
At the end of January 1990 the number of unfilled places in Wales was 5,795 broken down as follows: South and Mid Glamorgan 1,889; Gwent 1,127; West Glamorgan and Dyfed 789; and Gwynedd, Clwyd and Powys 1,990.
