§ Mrs. Anne Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what complaints he has received on the imposition of a training levy on building workers with 714 or SC60 certificates; and if he will make it his policy that such deductions should be halted forthwith.
§ Miss Widdecombe
We have received no complaints about the imposition of a training levy from building workers who have identified themselves as having 714 or SC60 certificates.
Under the legislation the liability to pay Industry Training Board levy lies with the employer. If the employer attempts to pass the levy on to the employee or sub contractor, there is no legal obligation for them to pay it.
