Child Care Facilities (Hansard, 17 November 1987)
HC Deb 17 November 1987 vol 122 c513W
26. Mrs. Wise

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether child care facilities and payments will be offered to parents under 18 years who have to take up a YTS place under the provisions in the current Employment and Social Security Bills.

Mr. Cope

No one will be forced to take up a place on YTS under the provisions of the present Employment and Social Security Bills. YTS is and will remain a voluntary scheme. Special arrangements have been made in the Social Security Bill to protect the position of parents under 18 who will remain entitled to income support.
