asked the. Secretary of State for Employment whether any change will be made to the cash limit of the Manpower Services Commission.

Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimates, the total grant-in-aid to the Manpower Services Commission will be increased from £889·744 million to £992·030 million. The increase will be found from the contingency reserve and so does not add to planned spending totals.An additional £102·832 million is required by the MSC to meet an increase in demand for places under the youth opportunities programme and to support longer-term training of young persons but there are off-setting savings of £0·546 million for jobcentre advertising. The increase in the total grant-in-aid will require consequential adjustments to the following cash limits:
