§ Miss Boothroyd
asked the Secretary of State for Employment, pursuant to his reply of 30 April, Official Report, column 108, whether he will outline the selection procedure for the 15 per cent. of ex-trainees who are contacted to provide statistics of post-youth training scheme employment rates; whether he will list, by type of work undertaken whilst on youth training schemes, those contacted who comprised this 15 per cent. for each of the last 12 months; and whether he will further list the types of work undertaken whilst on youth training schemes by the 85 per cent. of ex-trainees not contacted for the compilation of the post-youth training scheme employment statistics for each of the last 12 months.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
The 15 per cent. sample for the survey of young people who have left the youth training, scheme is selected on a random basis. This ensures that the sample reflects all the types of scheme, and industrial sectors and occupational groups, experienced by young people on the youth training scheme as a whole, as well as the balance of provision between the modes and the range of trainees taking part in the scheme.
