§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment when new arrangements will be in place in the South Thames TEC area. 
§ Mr. Paice
I am very pleased to announce that contracts have now been signed with central London TEC to provide training and enterprise council services from 355W 24 April 1995 for the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and with South London TEC to provide TEC services from 24 April 1995 for the London boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham. This will ensure the delivery 356W of Government programmes in the area and provide a sound base for the future. I know that CENTEC and SOLOTEC are keen to play a full part in the wider economic regeneration of the area as soon as possible.
