asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many recipients of grants under the special training measures scheme there were in the last year; and what is the gross cost of the programme and the cost per place.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that 30,578 grants have so far been taken up under the 1977–78 special measures training in industry programme. The gross cost of all grants available through industrial training boards and other national training organisations amounts to £39·4 million. The average cost of grants offered under the 1977–78 programme, which range from £500 to £2,000, is £1,076.
