asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many of those men and women trained at skillcentres in 1974 have not been placed in employment.
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that during 1974 17,117 people completed TOPS courses at skill-centres. 13,823 of these found or were placed in work during or at the end of training. 2,022 people who were unplaced on completion of their training were subsequently placed during the year. Efforts to place the remaining trainees continues.
