Mr. Alan Howarth

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what transitional protection will be afforded to non-employed status trainees hitherto eligible to benefit under his Department's analogous industrial injuries scheme, following the enactment of the Social Security (Incapacity For Work) Act 1994; and what transitional arrangements will apply for participants in other schemes funded through his Department and affected by this legislation.

Miss Widdecombe

I regret that it has not been possible to provide an answer prior to the summer recess. I shall ensure that the hon. Member receives a reply as soon as possible and arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library.
