HC Deb 22 February 1994 vol 238 c199W
Mr. Patchett

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will ensure that Barnsley/Doncaster TEC uses its reserves to further local business; if he will publish a breakdown of the current unused reserves of the Barnsley/Doncaster TEC; how many training programmes are currently being undertaken; and how many employers are providing places for the unemployed within the Barnsley/Doncaster TEC area.

Miss Widdecombe

Efficiency savings made by training and enterprise councils are reinvested in their work to stimulate economic growth in their local communities. Questions about the reserves of any TEC are for each TEC to answer.

The training programmes operated by Barnsely and Doncaster TEC are: youth training; training for work; learning for work and business start-up. Although a significant number of youth training and training for work participants undertake work experience on employers' premises as part of their training programmes, information on the number of training places provided by employers is not available.
