§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many youth training places were identified and supported in the Workington travel-to-work area and the county of Cumbria during the last month for which statistics are available.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
In the Allerdale and Copeland local authority districts, which broadly correspond to the Workington travel-to-work area, 30 new scheme places were identified between 13 May and 24 June, and a total of 279 places were approved by the Cumbria area manpower board. In Cumbria as a whole, about 700 new youth training scheme places were identified between the same dates and 953 places were approved.
