§ 15. Mr. Mandelson
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if she will increase the Government's provision for young people's training.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
We plan to spend over £850 million on youth training in the current financial year. This compares with a mere £63 million spent on YOP in 1978–79. I am satisfied that this Government has given training and enterprise councils the resources they require to meet the training needs of young people.
