§ Mr. Weetch
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what sums of money were provided in connection with archaeological excavation of ancient monuments in England by the Manpower Services Commission over the most recent convenient period.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
It is estimated that some £2.5 million will be provided over the next year for projects funded under the community programme where archaeological activities form the major work of the project.
I regret that there are no figures available centrally on the amount of commission funding for archaeological projects under the youth training scheme.
