Seems a strange choice to cut
Seems an odd choice to cut, though of course, the conservative element is known to be influenced by the more elite folks. Like Directors.
That might be skeptical of course. And I do want the Coalition to succeed-the labour nannies were way, way over the top.
However, I can't help feeling that its a choice that reduces options a little for workers.
Personally, I would not work for a company that didn't offer a reasonable level of staff development, as it would be pointless to me.
To condradict myself a little, perhaps its not something the government should be regulating in the first place. If a company doesn't value training on its own, that says a lot about the company in question, imposing artificial rules on them will not change that fundemental set of values, meaning the legislation would be paid lip service too.
No point in pointless laws.
