§ Dr. Godman
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what level of funding is devoted by the Manpower Services Commission to the Greenock travel-to-work area.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
[pursuant to his reply, 19 April 1985, c. 248]: I regret that the information is not available in the form requested. However, it is estimated that over £24 million was spent by the Manpower Services Commission in 1984–85 in the Renfrew, Dumbarton, Argyll and Bute area, exclusive of administration costs, but including the operating costs at the jobcentres in the area.
