HC Deb 02 February 1994 vol 236 cc776-7W
Ms Short

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how much funding has been made available to each training and enterprise council in 1992–93 and 1993–94, expressed in cash terms and real terms, and giving a real terms percentage change from the previous year, for(a) youth training and credits, (b) training for work and the programmes it replaced and (c) business start-up allowance; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stewart

There are no training and enterprise councils in Scotland. The funding of local enterprise companies is an operational matter for Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. I have asked the chairmen of these bodies to write to the hon. Member.
