Mr. Andrew Welsh

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the areas in Scotland in which special measures to ease access to youth training announced in March have been set up, which include links between social work departments, hostels accommodating homeless young people, voluntary organisations and suitable training providers.

Mr. Lang

[holding answer 23 July 1990]: As part of the new arrangements announced for youth training, all Training Agency area offices in Scotland have appointed guarantee liaison officers whose remit is to assist young people within the youth training guarantee group and to establish or reaffirm links with voluntary organisations, social work departments, careers and probation services, and the Department of Social Security; and to encourage training managers to establish close links with hostels for homeless young people.
