20. Mr. Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many young people at the latest available date have obtained places on the YTS; and what is the latest available percentage rate for those who succeed in subsequently obtaining jobs.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
At the end of December 1986, 21,735 young people were undergoing YTS training in Wales. Fifty five per cent. of YTS leavers between April and July 1986 went into jobs, the highest proportion since the current surveys began in July 1985.
