HC Deb 17 April 1991 vol 189 cc189-90W
Mr. Churchill

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what is the current maximum level of payment per trainee being made by training enterprise councils to agencies providing skill and vocational training to the young, and of this how much is due to the trainee and agency, respectively.

Mr. Jackson

Payments to providers of youth training are a matter for negotiation between them and the training and enterprise councils. Trainees who are not employed must receive a weekly training allowance of at least £29.50 when they are aged 16, and at least £35.00 when they are aged 17 and above.
