The article reports on the doubt cast over the announcement of 35,000 apprenticeships by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Brown gave brief details of the plans while visiting the Rolls-Royce aero engine plant in Derby, England. Employment minister Tony McNulty was unable to clarify whether the announcement from Brown was new and not a re-hash of an earlier one. Liberal democrat leader Nick Clegg said he was worried that employers would scrap apprenticeship schemes because of the economic downturn.
