§ Mr. Sproat
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many women trained in shorthand and typing under the training opportunities scheme in 1976 got a job within one month of ending the course and kept that job for at least six months.
§ Mr. Golding
I regret that information is not available in the form requested. The nearest data from a sample survey of one in six trainees completing courses under the Training Opportunities Scheme show that 69 per cent. of the women who completed clerical/commercial courses in Great Britain in the first quarter of 1977 were in employment three months later.
