HC Deb 30 October 1990 vol 178 cc478-9W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many youth training centres will close as a result of the level of funding for voluntary training centres in 1990–91 in(a) Glasgow, (b) Strathclyde and (c) Scotland.

Mr. Lang

The future of training centres is entirely the responsibility of those organisations, including voluntary organisations, who run them. The Government do not fund youth training centres; they guarantee to provide a youth training place for every eligible young person in Scotland who wishes one and pay managing agents for filled training places.
