HC Deb 22 March 1995 vol 257 c249W
Mr. Battle

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans the Government have to encourage training in gardening so that those who are unemployed can learn the skills to manage allotments and grow their own vegetables. [15263]

Mr. Paice

Training for work offers training to help unemployed people get back to work. If training in gardening skills is likely to help individuals find jobs, training and enterprise councils may support it. In 1995–96, we aim to help some 104,000 people into jobs through TFW.
