HC Deb 18 January 1990 vol 165 cc395-6W
Mr. Dunn

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what expenditure levels were reached in the application of the sheltered placement scheme for each year since the scheme started; what is the budget for 1990–91 and what change, in cash, real and percentage terms it reflects; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholls

The information is not available in the form requested. Claims for expenditure are made for the combined expenditure on workshops and sheltered placements. This expenditure, together with an estimate for the current year, is shown in the table. These figures do not include the grants and loans to Remploy Ltd. I will write to the hon. Member when the budget for 1990–91 has been settled.
