HC Deb 27 February 1995 vol 255 c442W
Mr. Barron

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what has been the number of starts in employment training and in training for work in each of the last five years; and what is the number in each year for those completing such training.

Mr. Paice

The information is given in the table. As figures on those completing training come from surveys, it is possible to give only an estimate of the percentage and not the actual number.
