Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

THE Manpower Services Commission's Training Opportunity scheme to support heavy goods vehicles driver training is being withdrawn from five regions of England and Wales next year. The decision was made because of the limited job prospects of those on the scheme.

The affected areas will be the North, North West, Midlands, Wales and London, according to a parliamentary answer from Mr Peter Morrison, Under Secretary for Employment.

He noted that there would still be five training facilities which provided the bulk of heavy goods vehicle driver training in these regions.

Replying to a further question from Dennis Skinner (Labour, Bolsover) the Minister said that the number of people qualified following training under the scheme had been 2,155 in 1981, 3,479 in 1980 and 3,908 in 1979. In the Midlands 364 had been trained in heavy goods vehicles driving between March 1 1981 and the end of February this year.
