§ Mr. Clapham
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment (1) how many 16 and 17-year-olds in Yorkshire and Humberside have taken up training credits;
(2) how many 16 and 17-year-olds in the three Barnsley constituencies have taken up training credits.
§ Miss Widdecombe
In Yorkshire and Humberside, between April 1991 and March 1993, an estimated 5, 400 16 and 17-year-olds took up their entitlement to a youth credit. Youth credits information is not collected at constituency level but at training and enterprise council level and Barnsley and Doncaster TEC is not a youth credit pilot area.
