asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will take steps to extend the job release scheme, so as to enable more men to retire from jobs where younger unemployed people are anxious and willing to take over those jobs.

We do not propose to make any changes in the current job release schemes which are due to end on 5 April 1981. Decisions on the future of the schemes after that date will be made as part of the annual review of the special employment and training measures which will take place later this year.
