asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will consult the Manpower Services Commission over the cut-hack in places for courses in literacy and numeracy for adults at the Abraham Moss Centre, Manchester, with a view to restoring the number of places.

I have consulted the Manpower Services Commission and am advised that there is no intention to reduce the number of places on courses in literacy and numeracy available for adults in the Manchester area. However, in order to ensure that the geographical spread of courses more closely meets the demand from students, only one course will be held at the Abraham Moss Centre in the 1977–78 academic year, but an extra course will be provided in Openshaw and the number of places increased on courses held in Oldham and Swinton.
