asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he remains satisfied with the voluntary arrangements made by industries previously covered by industrial training boards for the continued training of employees in those industries.
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what progress there has been in voluntary provision of industrial training to take the place of industrial training boards.
Most of the arrangements being set up by employer organisations to replace statutory industrial training boards are up to an acceptable standard. Others are making good progress. Manpower Services Commission officials are continuing discussions with employer organisations in those sectors where we are still looking for improvements.
