Deja Vu all over again....and again

"It was the backdrop to Friday's third economic "summit" of assembly ministers, Welsh Secretary Paul Murphy and business leaders to review the latest economic situation in Wales. Following the meeting, the assembly government announced plans for a scheme to pay companies to retain and train their staff rather than make them redundant".

"Rather than watching impotently as firms lay off key workers, why doesn’t the Assembly Government set up a multi-million- pound key fund which enables businesses to temporarily move their workers, during the current economic crisis, onto skills training courses? Not only would this enable businesses to retain their skilled workers through government support over the next 12 months, but it would provide opportunities for upskilling and, critically, enable firms to be in a more competitive position when we emerge from recession.It would also provide a boost to the business and training support sector of the Welsh economy at a time when firms may, inevitably, be cutting back on this aspect of their business".
