To ask the Secretary of State for Employment since 1979, what has been the annual expenditure on the programmes: (a) work experience on employers' premises, (b) youth opportunities programme, (c) youth training scheme, (d) community programme, (e) job training scheme, (f) employment training, (g) technical and vocational education initiative, (h) local collaborative programme and (i) open tech and open college, expressed (i) in cash terms, (ii) in constant 1991 prices and (iii) as a figure which indicates the amount of EC funding included in each programme.
The table shows expenditure for Great Britain at cash and constant 1990–91 prices in each year from 1979–80 to 1990–91 on youth opportunities programme (which includes work experience on employers premises), youth training scheme (which includes training credits), community programme, job training scheme (which includes new job training scheme), employment training (which includes the Gateshead garden festival), technical and vocational education initiative, local collaborative projects and open tech and the Open college. I will write to the hon. Member separately on the question of the EC funding.
