To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what information he has on the policy of West Germany in dealing with trans-national training projects; and if he will make a statement.

My Department is currently seeking information from European social fund applicants on all likely trans-national training projects, including those linked with West Germany. Once we have replies we will approach the other member states concerned with those projects to establish their policy towards them.

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what applications his Department has received from the Trident training initiative for European social fund funding towards the cost of trans-national projects.

According to my Department's records, no applications have been received for ESF funding from the Trident training intitiative up to the year ending 1989. The project applications for 1990 have yet to be submitted.
