§ 74. Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will state the amount of money spent on the Community Industry Scheme functioning in the Mexborough and District area up to the last available date; and if he will make a statement on the future plans for this scheme.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
The total expenditure on Community Industry in Mexborough up to 30th September, 1972, was £15,338. This includes a proportion of the cost of running Community Industry's headquarters.
A report recommending an expansion of the scheme has been submitted to my right hon. Friend by the National Association of Youth Clubs and this is being sympathetically considered.
