§ Mr Kaufman
We are examining carefully, in consultation with the two Organising Committees, possible locations for the headquarters of British Aerospace and British Shipbuilders. It was announced in the House in July 1974 that the Laboratory of the Government Chemist would be relocated in West Cumbria.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I have been asked to reply.
The Manpower Services Commission informs me that the Training Services Agency has recently reviewed the training needs of the North-West. As a result, plans are in hand for a further three skillcentres; in Rochdale in spring 1976, 182 places; in Preston in summer 1976, 192 places; and Prestwich-Middleton, 200 places: providing an additional 574 training places by 1979.
