HC Deb 16 March 1993 vol 221 c198W
22. Mr. Austin-Walker

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if she will outline the measures which she has taken to alleviate youth unemployment in Woolwich; and what assessment she has made of the results.

Mr. McLoughlin

Woolwich is covered by South Thames training and enterprise council. The TEC has recently increased its youth training opportunities by 75 per cent., from 2,000 to 3,500. This is sufficient to meet the demand for places locally.
