asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what basis he has concluded that the difference between net costs and gross costs in the introduction of the second year of youth training is £60 million in 1986–87 and £150 million in 1987–88.
[pursuant to his reply, 25 March 1985, c. 101.]: The Budget Statement explained that the additional expenditure on the youth training scheme will be partly offset by savings in social security payments and by the ending of the young workers scheme. The difference between net and gross costs for 1986–87 implicit in the statement was £80 million.
