§ Mr. Golding
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that while no publicity for the job creation programme is specifically directed at small- and medium-sized firms, the Commission welcomes proposals for projects from the private sector. The scope is limited, however, because the work involved must not be a duplication or extension of existing activities, and personal gain or significant commercial advantage are not permitted.200W
The other main special employment and training measures which apply to the Coventry area are: temporary employment subsidy; youth employment subsidy; work experience programme; job introduction scheme for disabled people and the incentive training grants paid through the MSC and industrial training boards. Each of these various schemes has its own programme of publicity and, while there are no special arrangements for small- and medium-sized firms, industry as a whole is encouraged to make the fullest use of them.
