asked the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of training board staffs is employed in Scotland.

I am advised by the Manpower Services Commission that an overall proportional figure would not be meaningful because boards vary in the way they organise their staff to fit in with the structure and geographical location of their industries. Some boards have staff with joint responsibilities in northern England and Scotland and most boards have some of their centrally employed staff deployed throughout Great Britain providing specialist services.Most of the larger boards have a considerable cadre in Scotland and some of them maintain regional offices there.
