HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c172W
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.
