HC Deb 06 February 1985 vol 72 c587W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the future of the Perivale skillcentre.

Mr. Peter Morrison:

At its meeting on 24 January the Manpower Services Commission considered and endorsed proposals from its skillcentre training agency for the future of skillcentre services. The chairman has written to my right hon. Friend with the commission's views—a copy of his letter is in the Library—and we are considering its advice. The proposals envisage that the skillcentre at Perivale would be retained and provide expanded training services for both employed and unemployed people in line with our adult training strategy.
