§ Mr. Wareing
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what action he plans to take to protect projects which provide services for disabled people when employment training replaces the community programme in September.
§ Mr. Nicholls
Project-based training will be an important part of employment training with some 194,000 project-based opportunities in the first year, broadly the present level of community programme provision. I hope that most current community programme projects will move forward into employment training, bringing with them the worthwhile services that they currently provide.
