Prior to the introduction of TECs and local enterprise companies in 1990–91 training schemes were run from the Department's area offices. Area office running costs were not separately identified from those of regional and head office.
During 1990–91 expenditure on TEC management fee in England and Wales was £36.195 million.
For 1991–92 the published estimate shows expenditure of £124.342 million on TEC management fee and residual area office running costs for England and Wales.
Running costs for programmes in Scotland are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.
