§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for Employment which training boards have brought bankruptcy actions against firms in the industries covered by their responsibilities; how many actions have 946W been brought by each board; and what are the total legal costs incurred by each of these boards in these actions.
§ Mr. Golding
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the only industrial training board to have taken bankruptcy actions is the Construction Industry Training Board. Information on the amount of the legal costs and on the number of actions is not readily available and its collection would require a disproportionate cost.
