HC Deb 18 November 1986 vol 105 c168W
39. Mr. Sheerman

asked the Paymaster General what progress has been made in increasing the level of resources devoted to training by British industry since the publication of "Competence and Competition".

Mr. Trippier

The successful introduction of two-year YTS demonstrates that industry's commitment to training is increasing. I was also encouraged by a recent survey of non-statutory training organisations which shows increasing activity in industry's training of adults. For their part, the Government have committed themselves to work with others to achieve radical modernisation of our vocational and education system, and our objectives are set out in the White Paper "Working Together — Education and Training" (Cmnd. 9823).
