asked the Secretary of State for Employment what job training and retraining facilities are provided by the Manpower Services Commission within the area of the London borough of Brent and what changes the Commission plans to make to the level of provision of training (a) for 16- to 19year-olds and (b) for workers made redundant in the area.

[pursuant to his reply, 4 March 1980, c. 111]: I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the youth opportunities programme provides a range of work preparation courses and work experience schemes for unemployed young people aged 16 to 19 years in the borough of Brent. Estimates of the number of young people expected to enter the programme in 1980–81 suggest that the current provision is more than adequate to meet the need.
