39. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked whether he is aware of the difficulty which is experienced by Indian engineering students in this country in obtaining the necessary practical experience as apprentices in engineering works; whether he is aware that the Japanese Government, in placing contracts with engineering firms in this country, stipulates that every contracting firm shall take a certain number 1168 of Japanese apprentices and afford them facilities for practical experience; and whether the Indian Government has considered the advisability of making a similar rule with regard to contracts for the Indian Government?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for East Nottingham on the 22nd April.
