HC Deb 10 December 1991 vol 200 c410W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment when he received proposals for national vocational qualifications from the British Footwear Manufacturers Federation; and when he intends to approve them.

Mr. Jackson

Submissions for accreditation of qualifications as national vocational qualifications—NVQs—are received by the National Council for Vocational Qualifications—NCVQ. The British Footwear Manufacturers Federation is in discussion with NCVQ and Employment Department officials and it is hoped that it will soon be able to make a successful submission to the NCVQ for accreditation of NVQs.
