HC Deb 26 June 1990 vol 175 c184W
18. Mr. Irvine

To ask the Secretary for State of Employment what plans he has to improve the quality of industrial training.

Mr. Howard

Employer-led training and enterprise councils (TECs) are being set up all round the country with the primary responsibility of improving training performance within their local labour market. In addition, industry training organisations have a major role in establishing recognised standards and promoting them within their sector.
