HC Deb 12 February 1987 vol 110 c298W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how much has been spent by his Department on each of the various Manpower Services Commission schemes in Wales in each year since their inception; and what is the projected expenditure for 1986–87.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Expenditure on Manpower Services Commission schemes in Wales was not separately identified before 1978–79. The information requested is shown in the following table:

unemployed, (ii) in full-time education and (iii) on Government-sponsored training schemes; what proportion each category represents of the population of that age group in those areas; and what are the corresponding figures for each year since 1979.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I shall write to the hon. Gentleman and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.
