asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many trainees at the Killingworth training centre come from the Berwick, Alnwick and Castle Morpeth local authority areas; and what alternative facilities would be available to them if the centre closed.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the following number of trainees attend Killingworth skillcentre from the areas mentioned:

Berwick4
Alnwick2
Castle Morpeth3
Total9
All the trainees from Berwick and Alnwick are in lodgings and could attend similar courses at Felling skillcentre or Felling skillcentre annexe.There is no proposal to close the skill-centre at Killingworth at present.
