§ Ms. Primarolo
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make the results of the Government's market research into the viability of employment credit schemes, and the pilot action credit scheme, available to the training and enterprise councils; and which training and enterprise councils are planning to adopt a form of such schemes in each area.
The results of the market research carried out on behalf of the Employment Service were published 321W in July 1990 under the title "Action Credit: Survey of Clients", and a copy was placed in the Library of the House. The results of the pilot action credit scheme will be published shortly. They will be made available to TECs through Employment Department regional offices. No central record is kept of the extent to which TECs are planning such schemes, but it is understood that few TECs currently have such plans.
