asked the Secretary of State for Employment what training facilities are available for young people who are registered as unemployed at the Mexborough employment exchange.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that figures for the youth opportunities programme are collected by local authority district. Mexborough employment office area falls under three local authority districts; Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham. In those districts there are currently about 1,300 training places and 2,400 work experience places available under the youth opportunities programme.
