asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many people in the Northern region are being assisted by the special employment and training measures; and what was the number in January 1979.

The information requested is given in the schedule below.The February 1980 figure is not strictly comparable with that for 1979 because of the introduction, in September 1979, of fortnightly attendance and payment of benefit.
