Government Cuts In Training

EDM number 686 in 1990-91, proposed by Alan Meale on 28/03/1991.

That this House is alarmed that, whilst the Government have now established 52 of the planned 82 training and enterprise councils (TECs) and their Scottish counterparts, local enterprise councils (LECs) to take over local responsibility for training, it has for the second successive year imposed significant cuts in their budget spending to a level representing a 25 per cent drop in training financial provision since the 1990 Autumn Statement; notes that funding for Employment Training (ET) is to be cut by 30 per cent in 1991-92, with many schemes currently being instructed to reduce drastically levels of trainees and that the Youth Training (YT) budget is also being cut in real terms by ú68 million over the next two years, with the effect that the guarantee of a YT place for unemployed 16 and 17 year olds will become increasingly difficult to fulfill; recognises the role played by the voluntary sector who provide more than a quarter of training places in programmes specifically designed to meet special needs and believes these will be hardest hit by such cuts; and calls upon the Government to reverse immediately their policy on these matters.

This motion has been signed by a total of 54 MPs.
