§ Sir David Price
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if, in the pilot scheme under the new training initiative starting in Birmingham during 1982–83, he will make financial provision for special schemes for handicapped young people; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
In Birmingham, as elsewhere, the Manpower Services Commission will be initiating 12-month high quality training schemes for unemployed young people within the youth opportunities programme. The commission intends to see that provision of this type will cater for the full range of young people, including those who are disabled.
