asked the Paymaster General if he will list each of the schemes currently run by the Manpower Services Commission and the Department of Employment in the area of training and job creation, together with expenditure on each scheme for the last year and estimated expenditure for the next five years, and together with the number of places on each scheme and the number of people expected to benefit from each scheme.

The employment, training and enterprise measures run by my Department and the Manpower Services Commission are listed in the "Action for Jobs" booklet. Details of provision for last year and planned provision for these measures for the period up to 1989–90 are contained in chapter 3.7 of "The Government's Expenditure Plans 1987–88 to 1989–90", volume II (Cm. 56-II), a copy of which is in the Library. Beyond this period, plans are received annually. On 28 January I announced a further expansion of certain programmes which will increase my Department's total provision beyond that shown in Cm. 56-II without adding to public expenditure. A detailed breakdown of all this provision for 1986–87 and 1987–88 is contained in class VII of the "Government's Supply Estimates 1987–88", volume 227-VII. All of this provision is subject to parliamentary approval.
