asked the Paymaster General how many YTS trainees are currently working in the Department of Employment and Manpower Services Commission; and what are their employment status, terms and conditions, including remunerations.

None at present, but the Department of Employment and the Manpower Services Commission propose to introduce a YTS scheme this Easter in four different parts of the country. Initially there will be places for 120 clerical trainees. About 20 will have employee statutes and the same terms and conditions and remunerations as Civil Servie clerical grades. About 100 will be non-employees who will receive the appropriate standard YTS allowances. The scheme will be an equal opportunity training programme, and all trainees will receive the same protection as employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
