asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take the appropriate steps to investigate the financial operation of the YTS scheme administered by the Development Board for Rural Wales; why the scheme is to be transferred to the Mid Wales training unit; and if he will arrange for an independent audit into the scheme covering the period 1983 to 1987.

[pursuant to his reply, 9 April, c. 375]: Adequate audit arrangements already exist and I know of no reason for further financial investigation of the scheme. Any transfer to a new management would require the approval of the Manpower Services Commission, which has received no request for such approval.
