HC Deb 28 January 1993 vol 217 c845W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many people in the Liverpool travel-to-work area are currently being trained on Government financed schemes; what percentage of trainees leaving schemes last year are known to have found employment; and if she will express these figures as a proportion of the total number of people registered for employment benefit in Liverpool.

Mr. McLoughlin

At November 1992, the latest date for which information is available, there were about 12,600 people on employment and youth training in the Merseyside training and enterprise council area. Estimates are not available for the Liverpool travel-to-work area. In the latest full year to March 1992, 22 per cent. of employment training leavers and 33 per cent. of youth training leavers were in a job after leaving their programme. People on Government training schemes are not included in the monthly unemployment figures.
