asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) what progress has been made and what projects are being examined in relation to job creation schemes in the Torrington area of Devon;(2) how many job creation schemes are in operation in the Torrington area of Devon.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that there are no projects approved or under consideration for job creation programme funding in Torrington.
