§ Mr. Austin-Walker
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will provide an up-to-date table showing for TECs in England and Wales the amount of funding(a) allocated and (b) paid to them under each block of expenditure, for each year since 1990–91 and the amounts allocated for 1993–94.
§ Miss Widdecombe
The budgets allocated and paid to training and enterprise councils in England in 1992–93, and the allocations for 1993–94 are shown in the table.
Information on funding to TECs in England for 1990–91 and 1991–92 is not available. Funding in these transitional years was made through both area offices and TECs, and included Scotland.
From 1992–93, funding blocks were replaced by individual budgets for each programme to be delivered.
The table is therefore shown by programme.
Funding for Wales is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
