asked the Secretary of State for Employment what consultations he has had within the industry, including the trade unions involved, about the future of the Road Transport Industry Training Board.

I had a useful meeting with employer organisations and the chairman of the board on 4 February. I had arranged to meet union representatives on the same day, but not all were able to attend and the meeting was cancelled. I have now arranged to meet representatives of two of the unions concerned next week and the others know that I will be happy to meet them at any time. The Manpower Services Commission will also be consulting both employer organisations and trade unions before reaching a view about the future of the board.
