asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is his estimate of the number of young persons aged 16 to 19 years who will benefit from the arrangements to reduce unemployment and promote training by the end of 1978.

It is estimated that if the opportunities made available by the Government are taken up, during 1978 more than 100,000 young people aged under 19 are likely to benefit from the youth opportunities programme. About 4,000 to 5,000 young people will benefit from the community industry scheme, 25,000 from the youth employment subsidy, 30,000 from the job creation programme, and 41,000 from support for training in industry.
